Noah topped the new baby names in the US in 2013 for the first time since the Social Security Administration began keeping track of American names, the US agency announced Friday.
This marks the first time since 1960 that a name other than Michael or Jacob was the most popular.
Also near the the top of the boys’ chart were other biblical names, including Jacob, Ethan, Michael and Daniel. Among the girls’ were Abigail and Elizabeth.
Noah topped the charts before the blockbuster movie of the same name starring Russell Crowe took to theaters in 2014.
