The names of baby boys born in Idaho range from Angel to Atilla, but more traditional monikers such as Michael, Christopher, Matthew, Joshua and David are the most popular.
Jan Wick of the Idaho Bureau of Vital Statistics said Thursday a new computer enables state statisticians to discover such obscure facts as whose baby is named what.
Wick said statistics show that girls' names in Idaho in recent years have tended to follow the names of stars on popular television programs, while the boys names are more biblical in origin.
"In 1986, one thing I found interesting is seven of the 10 most popular boys' names are biblical, while only one of the top 10 girls' names are found in the Bible, that's Sarah," Wick said.
For Idaho boys born in 1986, the five most popular names were Michael, Christopher, Matthew, Joshua and David.
