ST. PAUL (WCCO) – Regions Hospital says that Sophia and Jayden were the most-chosen names for new babies delivered at their facilities in 2011.

According to Regions’ Birth Center — where nearly 2,400 new babies were welcomed this year — everything old is new again, as new parents seem to be opting for vintage-sounding names.

The other major trend that nurses at the Birth Center noted was that traditional names are being given a fresh spin with new spellings, especially swapping in a “y” for vowels.

Here are the full lists for both female and male babies:

Girls: Boys:
01. Sophia 01. Jayden
02. Isabella 02. Aiden
03. Lilyana 03. Brandon
04. Emma 04. Liam
05. Amari 05. Ethan
06. Leah 06. Mohammed
07. Ella 07. Daniel
08. Olivia 08. Xavier
09. Ava 09. Levi
10. Emily 10. Owen
