Alaskan Baby Names

Baby Names by State

Alaska is one of the last states added to the United States of America, but it does really well by its birthing families. You can see from its birth data that it prides itself on taking care of these vulnerable populations. It has one of the lowest c-section rates in the USA, as well as a very low preterm delivery rate. Part of the birth data includes baby names. 

Baby names really vary regionally and wildly at that.

Sometimes you'll look at the data and not realize how no state seems to have the most popular names for the country as their top names - charming touches of regionalism. You can see how the Alaskan baby names reflect their country. A great example is the fact that Aurora is a popular name for a girl. You wouldn't necessarily see that in the same numbers in a different state. Take a trip through both the recent baby names and those from decades past.
