WASHINGTON — Talk about high expectations for a newborn: King and Messiah are among the fastest-rising baby names for American boys.

They are just a little behind Major, the boy’s name that jumped the most spots on the Social Security Administration’s annual list of popular baby names.

Jacob is the most popular for boys for the 14th straight year, according to the 2012 list released yesterday.

Sophia is the top name for girls for the second year in a row, after having first cracked the top 100 only in 1997.

Following Jacob are Mason, Ethan, Noah and William. Liam cracked the top 10 for the first time, coming in at No.?6. Daniel slipped out of the top 10 for the first time since 1998, to No.?11.

Following Sophia are Emma, Isabella, Olivia and Ava. Major jumped 505 spots, to No. 483.

The Social Security website provides lists of the top 1,000 baby names for each year since 1880. The top names that year were John and Mary. John is now No.?28, and Mary has fallen to No. 123. Those are the lowest spots for both names.
