Since 1920, the Social Security Administration has tracked the top given names for male and female births each year, breaking them down by state and allowing us to see the most popular baby names in Oklahoma. It's interesting to see the changes over the course of time. For example, in 1920, Mildred, Doris and Albert made the top 20 nationally while 2010 included Mia, Addison and Aiden. Some names such as Michael and Elizabeth regularly appear.
The most popular baby names in the state of Oklahoma often include several names that also make the national list. Here are the ten most popular names given to babies born in the state of Oklahoma for 2010.

Top 10 Names for Boys in Oklahoma
Nationally: Jacob was also the top name for boys nationally in 2010, and Aiden, Ethan, Noah, William and Michael also made the national list. Elijah was significantly more popular in Oklahoma than elsewhere in the United States (18th), but all of the top 10 Oklahoma boys names ranked in the top 20 nationally.
Top 10 Names for Girls in Oklahoma
Nationally: For girls, Isabella and Emma ranked 1 and 3 on a national level, and there was a much greater similarity between Oklahoma and the rest of the nation. In fact, with the exception of one, every girl name in Oklahoma's top 10 was in the top 11 nationally. Only Addison (11th) and Alexis (16th) ranked outside the top 10 across the United States, replaced in the national top 10 by Emily (6th) and Mia (10th).
