According to William Shakespeare (from “Othello”), “Good name in man and woman is the immediate jewel of their souls.” Some names are family names, while others are uniquely named to stand out. Regardless, a name says something about us.
Below are the top baby boy and baby girl names for deliveries at HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in 2022. They are:
Boys: Oliver, which was also the top boys’ name for 2020 and 2021.
These names for bundles of joy were part of the 912 babies that were delivered by HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Women and Infants Center in 2022.
