If you’re named Jessica or Michael, there’s a good chance you’re a millennial. That’s according to the experts over at Nameberry.
Just recently, Nameberry co-founder Pamela Redmond Satran shared the site’s tabulation of the names of all babies born from 1982 to 2004. These years are the widely considered boundary years for the millennial generation.
The people at Nameberry found that Jessica and Michael were the top choice of names given to babies born during the millennial years.
Satran told Good Morning America:
“No one before has quantitatively analyzed the names that define this much-discussed generation. They’re names that, with the exception of classics like Elizabeth and James, were not often used before the millennials and won’t be used again for 100 years, as millennial parents name their own children Emma instead of Amanda, Mason rather than Michael.”
Michael was the top name for millennial boys, with over 1.1 million baby boys given that name in the 20+ years considered for the tabulation.
According to Nameberry, the reason Michael was very popular was because it appealed to people as both modern and traditional at the same time. Here’s the top 20 list for millennial male names:
- Michael 1,131,021
- Christopher 925,809
- Matthew 856,718
- Joshua 779,372
- Daniel 663,363

Regular Alcohol Intake Can Help You Achieve Longevity, New Study Says
Regular, moderate intake of alcohol can reportedly help you live past 90 years old.
It's official: Alcohol is good for your heath. A new study by researchers from the University of California, Irvine (UCI) found that regularly consuming alcohol in moderate amounts can help you live longer. According to the findings, drinking small amounts of alcoholic beverages at night, like wine or beer, can help a person live well into their 90s.
The research is part of “The 90+ Study” of the UCI, which is led by UCI neurology professor Claudia Kawas. Kawas and her research team analyzed 1,800 nanogenarians in a long-term study aimed at better understanding and explaining longevity. The participants' habits and how those affected their health were recorded and analyzed.
It took the team 15 years to conduct the study and come up with the results.
