There’s a new girls’ name leading the trend for newborns in the U.S.

Olivia has overtaken the list of most popular baby names in the U.S. in 2016 so far, according to Nameberry.

Olivia replaces Charlotte, the girls’ top name for 2015, which slips to No. 3. Amelia, Ava, and Isla round out the girls’ top 5. The top 5 boys’ names retain the order they claimed for 2015: Ezra, Asher, Atticus, Declan, and Oliver.
