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 2009 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 2009.

Top 10 Names for Boys in Oklahoma
Nationally: Though reversed, Ethan and Jacob were also the top names for boys nationally in 2009. Michael ranked 3rd across the United States, and William, Noah and Joshua appeared in the top 10. Of the top 10 Oklahoma boy names, only Gabriel failed to show up in the top 20 nationally.
Top 10 Names for Girls in Oklahoma
Nationally: For girls, Isabella and Emma also ranked 1 and 2 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 13 nationally. Only Addison (12th) and Alexis (13th) ranked outside the top 10 across the United States, replaced in the national top 10 by Sophia (4th) and Mia (10th).
