(STACKER) — American culture is dynamic and ever-evolving, traceable by changes and trends in popular culture from fashion to music. But another way of observing changes in society is by analyzing the names parents give to their children. Of course, people pick names for different reasons — but the most important factors include religion, popular culture, and more simply, the names other people are giving their children.

Even though there have been so many women in history who have achieved amazing things, it seems that little girls’ names are mostly popularized by the stars of the entertainment industry: a child actress who was a beacon of hope during the Great Depression; the name that a famous singer named his own daughter; the title of a popular song; and the name that fictional characters gave their baby in a sitcom.

Stacker compiled a list of the most popular baby names for girls of the last decade in Oregon using data from the Social Security Administration. Names are ranked by the number of babies from 2010 to 2019.

See if you can guess the reasons behind the popularity—some are obvious, but others may surprise you.
