January was the most popular birth month.

Here is the top 10 girls names: 

  1. Ave
  2. Olivia
  3. Evelyn
  4. Madelyn
  5. Sophia
  6. Aubree
  7. Grace
  8. Nora
  9. Abigail
  10. Avery & Emma

Here is the top 10 boys names:

  1. Jackson 
  2. William
  3. Benjamin
  4. Carter
  5. Henry
  6. James
  7. Liam
  8. Luke
  9. Charles 
  10. Oliver

FOX19 NOW visited the maternity ward at Christ Hospital where we caught up with Patrick and Erin Schaub who had their first son on Monday. The couple named the newborn Grady.

They say they're happy to have picked a more unique moniker, that at least so far, hasn't topped a list.

"I don't want him to be one of four Gradys in the class. I really wanted him to be the only one," said Erin.
