most popular names in US

Hot on the heels of the release of the top UK baby names, the US has released their top US baby names. there are even tables of the top 1000 baby names for each decade. it looks like Alastair isn't very popular in the US, its not even in the top 1000 for 1980s.

so what are the top baby names in US and UK?

For UK boys 2003:
1. Jack
2. Joshua
3. Thomas
4. James
5. Daniel

For US boys 2003:
1. Jacob
2. Michael
3. Joshua
4. Matthew
5. Michael

For UK Girls in 2003:
1. Emily
2. Ellie
3. Chloe
4. Jessica
5. Sophie

For US Girls in 2003:
1. Emily
2. Emma
3. Madison
4. Hannah
5. Olivia

so not much in common in the top 5 except for Emily and Joshua. do you reckon that Emma is up there in 2nd place in the US because of Rachel in Friends naming her daughter Emma? hahaha.
