NASHVILLE, TN (AP) -- Emma and William were the top names for new babies in Tennessee in 2012. That's according to the Tennessee Department of Health, which collects the data from birth certificates. Those two names also took the top spots in 2011.

Other top names for girls, in descending order, were Ava, Olivia, Isabella, Sophia, Abigail, Madison, Chloe, Addison and Emily.

Although the rankings have changed for some of these names, all were in the top ten for 2011.

3 of those names - Ethan, Liam and Michael - were new to the list this year.
