The table below shows the 22 boys’ names and 24 girls’ names which the authors of the book “Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores The Hidden Side of Everything,”  Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, predict will be among the most popular baby names of 2015.

This table shows the popularity ranking of the names for each year, based on data from the U.S. Social Security Administration.
