Aiden is Very Popular in Kansas

The Irish name Aiden tops the most popular names for baby boys in Kansas, for the second year running. Connor also makes the top 25 list of boys names, coming in at number 7. The lists of boys and girls names are compiled by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and they aggregate names with alternate spellings, so for example if you called your baby Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh it was added into the count for Mick

The lists are compiled by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, from birth certificates. Strictly speaking the lists refer to babies born to Kansas residents. You could be an immigrant, even an illegal one. Perhaps a whole bunch of illegal Irish immigrants are poisoning lists of good American names.
