These Are The Most Popular Baby Names By State
Hawaii- Emma & Liam
Welcome back, Emma and Liam! We had hoped that Hawaii would give us some variety. It’s the state with one of the most unique racial makeups of the fifty.
According to to-Hawaii, “Hawaii is one of the most racially diverse places in the world as there is no majority – everyone is in a minority. In the 2010 Census, 23.6% of Hawaii residents claimed multi-ethnic backgrounds (two or more races), far more than any other state in the USA (the second highest is Alaska with 7.3%). You will find a “mixed plate” of ethnic groups in Hawaii; 38.6% of Hawaii’s population is Asian, 24.7% is White, 10% is Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islanders, 8.9% is Hispanic, 1.6% is Black or African American, 0.3% is American Indian and Alaska Native, and 23.6% of all Hawaii residents are of multi-ethnic background (two or more races).” Therefore, we’d hoped to see a Lani or a Riku take the top spot here. No luck.
