Noah has dusted off its ancient Biblical cobwebs and emerged a red-hot boy’s name. In case you missed it, in the Old Testament, God chose Noah to build a great ark that kept him, his family, and animals two-by-two alive during the Great Flood. They then repopulated the world. No small feat, right? The name has been around practically forever, but really took off in the mid-90s (perhaps thanks to actor Noah Wyle in the massive hit TV show, ER). And it’s been racing to the top of the boy names charts ever since.
