Emma and Noah are the official No. 1 baby names in the US for the second year in a row.

The Social Security Administration released its tally of the 2015 most popular baby names this morning on TODAY. The names on the Top 10 shifted less this year than in any of the past decade, with the Top 3 girls' names and the Top 6 boys' names remaining in the same order they held in 2014.

There was only one new name on the Top 10 for each gender: Harper replaced Madison for girls and Benjamin took the place of Daniel on the boys' side.

"The names that are popular now are influenced by pop culture, video games, movies, celebrities, along with religion and family," says Social Security Commissioner Carolyn Colvin.
