What's In A Name?

NPR
Friday, December 20, 2013

The top baby names for 2013 are in.

According to babycenter.com, the top five names for girls are Sophia, Emma, Olivia, Isabella and Mia. For boys, the top names are Jackson, Aiden, Liam, Lucas and Noah.

Reporter Jennifer Guerra, from Here and Now contributor Michigan Radio, has been thinking a lot about names lately — what they mean, what they project and what assumptions people make when they hear a name.

For Michigan Radio’s “State of Opportunity” project, Guerra wanted to know: What role do names play in a child’s future?
