List reveals top baby names selected by Arkansas parents in 2016

Choosing baby name for a boy or a girl can be a daunting endeavor for parents

Pennsylvania's top two picks, Emma and Noah, were the same as the nation's most popular names. Henry and Evelyn topped the list. In Louisiana, Liam was the name most frequently bestowed on boys, with 276 little Liams. Check out Social Security's website - socialsecurity.gov - to see the top national baby names for 2016. Noah sat atop the list for boy names. Ava was the most popular girl's name, at 279.

In addition to each state's top baby names (and names for USA territories), Social Security's website has a list of the 1,000 most popular boys and girls names for 2016.

The agency broke the names down by state.

Security Council May Meet at Request of Tokyo, Washington
Russia's defence ministry later said the missile landed about 500 kilometres from its territory and posed no threat. He urged other world leaders to "stop intimidating North Korea and find a peaceful solution to the problem".

For 2016, Kehlani and Kylo saw the biggest increases. The administration attributed this hike to singer Kehlani Parrish who was nominated for a Grammy previous year. She was named an artist to watch and clearly new parents agree her star is rising. Both jumped down a spot in the 2016 rankings. In 2015, Kylo was number 3,269. Perhaps Kylo can continue to harness the force and climb even higher in the coming years.

For boys, it was Creed.

The name Zayn also rose in 2016, which could be based on Zayn Malik, the former One Direction star, Forbes reported. For boys, it was Creed, which could be attributed to the return to the silver screen of boxer Rocky Balboa in the 2015 movie "Creed", where Rocky trains Adonis Johnson Creed, the son of his late boxing rival Apollo Creed.
