The results for the top baby names on the rise in 2016 are in.

Baby naming resource site Nameberry released its list of baby names on the rise this year, and the results give an interesting look at the names that are gaining popularity with new parents.

For girls, the name Olivia took the top spot as most popular baby name in 2016. Olivia knocked Charlotte out of the top spot, but Charlotte remains on the list at number three this year.

For boys, Ezra remains the most popular baby name for boys, and there wasn't much movement in the Top 10 from previous years. Just two names were added to the list; Levi and Wyatt replaced Jude and Jasper in 2016. 

Nameberry uses Google Analytics to determine the most popular baby names. According to Nameberry creator Pamela Satran, the results are "based on the most-visited of the nearly 20 million views of our individual name pages in the first three months of this year."
