The Social Security Administration has released its list of most popular baby names for 2014 -- just in time for Mother's Day. Nearly 4 million births were registered this past year. And what a fun surprise: One of the new royal baby's names is in the top 10!


Charlotte -- as in Princess Charlotte -- comes in as the 10th most popular name for girls. So either the U.K. is ahead of the trend, or Will and Kate are truly tuned in to our name trends. Regardless, we wouldn't be surprised to see Charlotte climb higher up on the list in the coming year!
