300+ Nashville Baby Names With Meaning

The health department of Nashville suggested an observation in which they noticed a change in the list of names of their children over these years. The name ‘Ava’ has been pushed to second place, with ‘Emma’ taking the top spot previously held by ‘Ava.’

Ava had been the most popular girl’s name in Nashville since 2011, but Emma overtook her in 2017. However, it appears that this well-known name is not going away anytime soon. On the other hand, Oliver topped the list of boy names this year, replacing Samuel.
