In a few years, Noah and Olivia are going to have a lot of company in their classrooms. The Social Security Administration website reports that in the state of Connecticut, those are not only the number one names for a baby boy and baby girl but in 2017 there were 222 baby boys given the name "Noah" and 230 baby girls were named "Olivia".

It's not easy coming up with the name that will identify someone for the rest of their lives. Some people go with a classic name like Elizabeth or Henry, while some parents opt to name their children after a place like Dakota or Madison. What are Connecticut moms and dads naming their babies? Social Security has compiled the following list of the top 25 names in the Nutmeg State:
