PHOENIX (AP) -

Jacob and Sophia will have lots of company when they start kindergarten in about five years.

Those are the top two names for baby boys and girls in Arizona so far this year.

The annual tally of top baby names compiled by the Arizona Department of Health Services continues for boys with Ethan, Daniel, Liam and Alexander. Director Will Humble says in a blog post that Liam made the top 10 for the first time but the rest were all on the list in 2011.

Following Sophia on the girls list of most popular names are Isabella, Emma, Mia and Olivia. Sofia with an F came in at No. 10.

The whole list of the top 100 names for girls and boys is posted on the department's website.
