  • In 2019, Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton saw the return of babies, with The Childbirth Center opening on Oct. 10. There were 78 babies born last year, including 36 girls and 42 boys. The top two boy names are Levi and Silas. As for the girls, all 36 have a unique name. No two names are alike even when spelling variations are taken into consideration. 

To find these results, we combined different spelling variations of the same sounding name. For example, the ranking for Liam also includes variations like Liamm. While Oliver also includes variations such as Olliver. Many of the other names on the list include multiple spellings.

At Geisinger, obstetrician/gynecologists and certified nurse midwives work together to comfort and care for mothers-to-be and their babies, and expectant moms will be able to tailor their birth plans according to their preferences. Midwives will facilitate natural birth plans, and OB/GYNs will be on duty at all hours to intervene when needed.
