Names of the First Babies of 2010 from All Fifty States
Here at Name Candy, we've scoured the local newspapers and compiled this list of the first babies born in 2010 in every state in the USA. As the world celebrated the new decade, parents celebrated the January 1st births of Catalina, Kylena, Keondre and Sinsear; two Xaviers; a Hailey and a Haily; a Riley and a Rylee.
So who was the very first 2010 baby to be born in the country? Maryland claims it was Olivia Rose, who arrived four seconds into the new year. Not so fast, though: babies were also born "at the stroke of midnight" in Arizona, Florida, Illinois, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania. In Florida, the midnight baby was born in a different year and a different decade than his twin. Read on to find out their names!
Note: We have tried to find the earliest baby born in any part of the state, but if you know of an earlier baby born in any state, let us know in the comments.
