My cousins middle name is Afton, but besides that... I've NEVER met an Afton before! Granted, it was most popular 107 years ago, it's not THAT surprising that I haven't met many Aftons!

2. McKell
Peak Popularity Year: 1991
How Unique: 131x more popular in Utah than any other state.

This one is especially hilarious because I KNOW A MCKELL BORN IN 1991! There's a million different spellings but they all count. McKell, Mikelle, Mickelle.

3. McCall
Peak Popularity Year: 1994
How Unique: 105x more popular in Utah than any other state.

Following close on the heals of McKell is McCall! For the moms that like McKell but wanted to be a little more UNIQUE. I can't tell you how many McCalls I know! The list is LONG!

4. Taylee
Peak Popularity Year: 2012
How Unique: 86x more popular in Utah than any other state.

This FEELS very Utah. I know a handful of young girls named Taylee,  but NONE my age. They're all under 10, which makes sense. Peak popularity was 11 years ago.

BOYS:

1. Dallin
Peak Popularity Year: 1997
How Unique: 67x more popular in Utah than any other state.

Yes, yes, and more yes! I know SO MANY Dallins, Dallens, Dalyns!

2. McKay
Peak Popularity Year: 1995
How Unique: 98x more popular in Utah than any other state.

McKay follows ONE YEAR after McCall, and 4 years after McKell. Let me tell you... The 90's had TONS of kids running around here with totally similar names.

3. Bridger
Peak Popularity Year: 2009
How Unique: 55x more popular in Utah than any other state.

This name never made sense to me. Bridger? Like someone that... Builds bridges? With that said... I definitely know at least 5 Bridgers.

4. Ammon
Peak Popularity Year: 2001
How Unique: 67x more popular in Utah than any other state.

I'm really surprised Ammon was popular only 22 years ago. I would've thought this was most popular like 40 years ago! If someone told me their name was Ammon I would AUTOMATICALLY assume they come from an extremely religious family.
