DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. The Social Security Administration has put out its list of the most popular baby names from last year. Topping the list for girls: Sophia. For boys, it's Jacob. As for fast rising contenders, Aria is becoming popular for girls. It seems parents are inspired by "Game of Thrones." Boys names gaining popularity: Major, King and Messiah.
A few other names of interest: David is hanging on at number 19, and Steve, where is Steve? Oh, 762.
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
