Naming a baby may be tough for some parents and some people can help. However, this does not mean that once a baby's name is suggested that this will stick.

It turns out that there are names that parents do come up with names they want for their offspring but later on regret it, some because of spelling errors.

Baby name consultant named Stephanie Coffield, who has a following on TikTok where she gives baby naming advice, enumerated the top 10 names that were later changed. These were also provided by the Social Security Administration to the Washington Post.

From 2017 to 2022, at the top of the list of the most changed names are Issac and Chole. These were misspelled common names, Isaac and Chloe.

These were followed by other names such as Aiden, Conner, Elliott, Michael, James, Isabella, Sophia and David.

“There’s nothing really uncommon that was a name change,” Coffield said. “Let this be a lesson to look up your child’s name ahead of time,” she added.

Aside from that, Coffield also shared the top 10 names people choose as their names. Ironically, Isaac and Chloe were at the top of the list followed by Sebastian, William, Olivia, Michael, Elijah, Matthew, Connor and Jonathan.

“This seems like just a case of names that were already commonly given to children so of course they’re high on the regret list,” Coffield quipped.

In the list, Michael was one of the top names. As far as the third-most changed or third-most adopted, the Washington Post suggested that people were changing names based on those declining in popularity.

Finally, for the top baby names of 2021 for boys, the Social Security Administration enumerated them in order: Liam, Noah, Oliver, Elijah, James, William, Benjamin, Lucas, Henry and Theodore.

As far as girls, the top names were (in order): Olivia, Emma, Charlotte, Amelia, Ava, Sophia, Isabella, Mia, Evelyn and Harper.
