Top Boy Names in 2010 and their popularity over the years

The top boy names remain relatively the same. The names Ethan, Aiden, Brayden and Logan continue to gain in popularity. These four names have not been on the boys lists for all that long considering how long a boy name usually stays popular.

Over the years, there is very little shifting, and rarely any sudden surprises of movements in the majority of boy names. For example Joshua, John, Michael and Joseph have been on the list of the top boy names for the majority of the past century. So far, this century has been fairly consistent.

Names that were once popular, like Ike and Ivan, in the early twentieth century fell off of the list in the mid 1900's and have all but disappeared, while Liam is making a comeback.

What does this mean?

Society still wants its males to be bright and steady workers. Leadership qualities are still admired as are competitiveness, working hard and being intelligent.

Top boy names indicate there is a bit more humor in these names, so perhaps there will be more joy in the workplace. More willingness to listen to others is starting to gain importance. So, perhaps future men will ask for directions when driving?Family values are stronger in the boys names this year than the girls's names, yet neither list has family values and a traditional family make-up as a predominant characteristic. Looking at both lists causes one to wonder what the family dynamics will shift to look like in the future.

Looking at these names also state that many of our boys have a hard time admitting mistakes as they need to be right at all costs. What will they end up sacrificing just so they can say they were right? More of these boys will work for themselves than for others as independence and doing things their own way is incredibly strong.

It appears that our men are highly competitive, while our woman are becoming more cooperative.
