It was baby mania in 2017 and Spectrum Health's Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids had over 7,600 babies born there this year.

Every year the hospital releases the top 10 baby names, for boys and girls, and it looks like parents were still loving a lot of the same names from 2016.

Olivia and Charlotte remained at #1 and #2, respectively for top girls names which includes 95.7's own Steve's daughter! He and his wife, Brittainy welcomed Baby Charlotte into the world on December 7th. A couple new names entered the list including Hazel and Adeline.

As far as the boys, the number 1 and 2 spots didn't change either with Liam and Levi being the top names. Oliver was the only new name to make its way on there compared to 2016.
