Have you ever met someone named “Matt” and said, “Wow . . . what a beautiful name“?

Now that’s not a knock on Matts.  I ask because it seriously might be the MOST beautiful name in the English language …

A baby website called took 400 of the most popular baby names in the U.S., and had a linguistics expert whittle it down to the Top 50 for Boys and Girls…However, they didn’t rank them… yet.

To do that, they used data from a study in 2018 that looked at which types of sounds we find the most beautiful or pleasing.

According to the results, the most beautiful name for a boy is “Matthew” … and for girls, it’s “Sophia.”

The Top 10 for boys are:  Matthew, Julian, William, Isaiah, Leo, Levi, Joseph, Theo, Isaac, and Samuel.

The Top 10 for girls are:  Sophia,  Zoe, Everly, Sophie, Riley, Ivy, Paisley, Willow, Ellie, and Emily.
