CONWAY, SC (WBTW) — Biblical names topped last year’s list of Conway Medical Center’s most-popular baby names.
Of the 1,430 babies born at the BirthPlace at Conway Medical Center, about half were the only baby given their name that year at the hospital, according to a post from the hospital.
The most popular name for boys was Noah, followed by Liam in second and Daniel in third. Fourth place was a tie between Dylan and Elijah.
For girls, Isabella was the most popular name, followed by a second place tie between Ava and Harper. Chloe and Scarlett tied for third place.
There were multiple different spellings for Jackson, including Jaxon, Jaxson and Jaxton. The name Alana had four different variations.

“Surprisingly enough, or not, there were no babies named Corona or Rona,” the post reads. “We don’t anticipate that being a trend anytime soon.”
