In the constant search for a creative name for your next child, two names stand out for a 2nd year as the most popular names for newborns in 2012.

Baby-Center, considered by many to be the leading online pregnancy and parenting resource, puts together an annual list of the 100 hottest baby names for boys and girls.  Their results come from the names of 450,000 babies born to parents registered on their website in 2012.  Yahoo recently explained that to measure true popularity in its rankings, Baby-Center combines names that sound the same but have different spellings (such as Sophia and Sofia).

Names like Anastacia and Elliot were trending heavily this past year, along with character names from the successful drama Downtown Abbey (Branson, Elise and Daisy).  Baby-Center also saw trends of colorful names increase (Blue and Grey).

In the end Sophie and Aiden were the most popular names for newborn girls and boys this year, keeping their title from 2011.
