The Social Security Administration has revealed the most popular baby names in the U.S. in 2022.

According to their latest release on Friday, there's just one newcomer to the list of the top 20 baby names in the country — split into 10 boy names and 10 girl names, based on 3.64 million babies in the U.S. who were issued Social Security cards last year.

Luna — popularized by John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, as well as Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem — entered the girls' top 10 at number 10, with Harper being bumped out of the ranks.
