NASHVILLE (AP) - Tennessee record keepers say the top names for new babies in 2015 remained unchanged.

The most popular boy's name was William, just as it has been for nine straight years. For girls, Emma was again the most popular name, continuing the placement it has held since 2011.

The Tennessee Office of Vital Records says following William, the most popular names for boys last year were James, Elijah, Mason, Noah, Liam, Jackson, Jacob, John and Carter, a newcomer to the list.

For girls, the top names after Emma in 2015 were Olivia, Ava, Harper, Abigail, Sophia, Elizabeth, Isabella, Madison and Emily. The No. 10 name, Emily, is also new to the latest standings.

The Office of Vital Records pulls data on Tennessee's most popular baby names from birth certificates.
