Most Popular Baby Names


​PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center’s Birthing Center staff has compiled a list of the most popular baby names for boys and girls born at PeaceHealth St. John over the past 12 months. The list reveals a decline in the popularity of some 2012 favorites, along with the strong debut of new favorites.

The most popular name for baby girls born at PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center in 2013 was Lilly, which did not even appear on the previous year’s Top 10 list.  The top girls name in both 2011 and 2012 Isabella disappears from the 2013 Top-10, although Izabella with a “z” did squeeze in at #10.

The most popular name for newborn boys was Jaxon, which did not appear in PeaceHealth St. John’s 2012 Top-10 list with the “x” spelling. However, Jackson was PeaceHealth St. John’s #3 boys name in 2012.  2012 favorite Aiden disappears from the 2013 Top-10.
