Sophia and Jayden have emerged as the top baby names in New York City for 2008, edging out Isabella and Daniel for the top spots. The Health Department announced Wednesday that 1,383 New York City newborns were named Sophia or Jayden last year, compared to 1,385 in 2007.

There were no dark horses among this year's winners, as four of the top five girls' names were on last year's list (Olivia eclipsed Kayla this year), as were four of the top five boys' names (David replaced Justin).

Yet innovation continues to thrive at the fringe. While grinding out Michaels, Matthews and Sarahs last year, New York City also gave the world more than a dozen Keons and Clementines.
