Social Security encourages everyone to enjoy the baby names list and, while online,
create a my Social Security account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount . my Social
Security is a personalized online account that people can use beginning in their working
years and continuing while receiving Social Security benefits.
Social Security beneficiaries have instant access to their benefit verification letter,
payment history, and complete earnings record by establishing a my Social Security
account. Beneficiaries also can change their address, start or change direct deposit
information, and request a replacement SSA-1099 online. People receiving benefits
can request a replacement Medicare card online.
People age 18 and older who are not receiving benefits can also sign up for a my Social
Security account to get their personalized online Social Security Statement. The online
Statement provides workers with secure and convenient access to their Social Security
earnings and benefit information, and estimates of future benefits they can use to plan
for their retirement. Residents of most states may request a replacement Social Security
card online if they meet certain requirements.
The agency began compiling the baby name list in 1997, with names dating back to 1880.
At the time of a child’s birth, parents supply the name to the agency when applying for a
child’s Social Security card, thus making Social Security America’s source for the most
popular baby names.
In addition to each state’s top baby names (and names for U.S. territories), Social
Security’s website has a list of the 1,000 most popular boys and girls names for 2020.
