KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- What’s in a name? New parents research, sweat and fret about what to call their children, not wanting to saddle them with a name that is going to get them beaten up on the playground, and will sound good over the PA speaker of a stadium or when announced in the halls of Congress.

Imagine the regret of all the parents who called their child "Sandy" this year before the Hurricane or the Mass murder.

After all that, these are the Most popular baby names picked by the parents at the Borgess Medical Center Birthing Center.

For Girls, the top five names were Lilly, Layla, Isabella, Emma and Kaylee.

For boys it sounds like the lineup at a rodeo: Liam, Jaxon, Jayden, Wyatt and Lucas.
