Every year the Social Security Administration releases information on the top baby names. Most parents take interest in these lists, either to help name the baby they are expecting, or to find out how their own baby's name ranked. Some parents use them to try to avoid choosing a name that's too popular.

Below are the top 50 baby names for 2011. Jacob continued his dominance in the top spot, where he's been since 2000.

Sophia edged out Isabella and Emma, who have been swapping the top three spots among them for the past several years. New No. 2 boy's name Mason surged 10 spots from his place at No. 12 on the 2010 list.
