Check out the top 10 most popular baby names in the great state of Arkansas for last year.

So yesterday I had one of those 'Facebook' memory posts come up n my feed. It was a picture of my soon-to-be 14-year-old son Grant looking at his new 3-month-old sister, Addy. Here is the short video of him letting me know it's his baby.

After seeing this video it did make me a little sad that Addy is now 10 and my son Grant will be 14 on Friday. So my son is named Grant because my wife's maiden name is Granberry, and my daughter is named Adelaide after a great-great-grandmother.

But what are the most popular baby names in Arkansas? The Social Security Website keeps track of the most popular baby names in each state and here are the top 10 names for babies in Arkansas last year.
