For the past few years folks have be straying from the 'typical' baby names in favor of more unique names. North, Titan, Royal, Ransom, Buzz, and Blue are just a few that we can name. However, these types of names are in the minority.

The Social Security Administration released it's list of the most popular baby names in 2014. Noah and Emma took the number one spot both in Texas and America. We'll leave the strange baby names to the celebs because Texas (and the nation) took the more traditional baby name route last year.
