Noah was the most popular male baby name in San Diego County for the second year in a row.
Oliver and David toddled out of the top 10 boy names in 2016, being replaced by Mateo and James.
On the girls’ side, the top names did not change last year from 2015, but the order did. Emma traded places with Mia for the top spot, while Victoria and Charlotte crawled ahead of Emily and Ava.
The County Health and Human Services Agency records all births in the region, where about 45,000 babies are born every year.
Here are the top 10 baby names parents chose in 2016.
