WASHINGTON (WBAY) - The Social Security Administration announced Friday the most popular baby names in Wisconsin in 2020.

Wisconsin parents’ preferred names are similar to the national list released by Social Security last week but reorganizes them and adds some of their own, like Theodore, Jack, Nora and Eleanor.

Henry, which had not appeared on the national Top 10 list in 110 years, has been in Wisconsin’s Top 10 since 2012. It was the third-most popular name for boys born in Wisconsin for the past three years and ranked #1 in 2017.

How many kids do you know with these names?
