According to a survey done by Nameberry’s, the most popular baby names of 2015 were Charlotte for girls and Ezra for boys.

We find it fascinating just how much names have come and gone throughout history, and yet many have remained with us since biblical times, like Ezra.

By the way 2015 was the first year Ezra laid claim to top spot as the most popular boy’s name, bumping another biblical name; Asher, to second place.

Charlotte is a beautiful name that has been around for quite some time, though not as long as Ezra.

The year 2015’s list of the most popular boys and girls baby names is a nice mixture of older and newer names, with influence from historic, royal, and biblical names.
