In 2016, there were 712 boys given the name "Noah" in the Keystone State, while 747 girls have "Emma" on their birth certificates.

New Jersey's most popular baby boy names are similar to those that made the Social Security Administration's national list for 2016.

Nationally, Emma was the top selection for a girl name a year ago.

In addition to each state's top baby names (and names for USA territories), Social Security's website has a list of the 1,000 most popular boys and girls names for 2016. Mason only appears on Ohio's list, James is unique to Kentucky's Top Five, while Oliver and Benjamin are only on Indiana's list.

Noah has held that top spot four times overall, while Emma three times. For girls, it was Emma, Ava, Olivia, Charlotte and Harper. In Louisiana, Liam was the name most frequently bestowed on boys, with 276 little Liams.

Pennsylvania's top two picks, Emma and Noah, were the same as the nation's most popular names. Visit the website here to see all 50 states' rankings.

The agency began compiling the baby name list in 1997, with names dating back to 1880.

The agency broke the names down by state.

For 2016, Kehlani and Kylo saw the biggest increases. The administration attributed this hike to singer Kehlani Parrish who was nominated for a Grammy a year ago. Both jumped down a spot in the 2016 rankings. Music fans will recognize Kehlani from artist Kehlani Parrish, and Star Wars fans will remember Kylo from "The Force Awakens". Perhaps Kylo can continue to harness the force and climb even higher in the coming years.

For boys, it was Creed.
