The most popular baby names of 2016 are out - just in time for Mother's Day.

Emma and Noah again top the list of the most popular baby names in the United States.

Olivia, Ava, Sophia, Isabella, Mia, Charlotte, Abigail, Emily, and Harper round out the top names for girls.

For boys, it's Liam, William, Mason, James, Benjamin, Jacob, Michael, Elijah, and Ethan.

The only significant change in 2016 was that Alexander fell off the boys' list, and Elijah made the list for the first time.
