NEW YORK CITY —  Jayden and Sophia were once again the most popular baby names in New York City last year — but not in every borough.

Brooklyn babies were more likely to be named David and Esther, while over in Manhattan, Alexander and Emma ranked highest, according to new Health Department data for 2013 obtained by DNAinfo New York.

Every year, the Health Department releases the top 10 most popular baby names in the city, but this year DNAinfo broke down the most recent data by borough, so now you can see how your little loved one's name — or yours — stacks up a bit closer to home.

In 2013, Jayden was the city’s top boys name for the fifth year in a row, but it didn't even make the top 10 in Manhattan. Ryan, meanwhile, fell off the city’s list of highest-ranked names in 2013, but it still held the ninth spot in Manhattan.

Sophia landed a spot within the top five on all the boroughs' rankings, but it’s only No. 1 in Queens and Staten Island.

Some of the baby names were only popular in a single borough, like Chaya and Moshe, the third-place names for girls and boys in Brooklyn.

Only in Manhattan do the names Jack, Benjamin and Henry make the top 10 for boys, along with Charlotte, Zoe, Maya and Ella for girls. In Queens, Abigail makes the top 10, while in The Bronx, Camila and Hailey tie for 10th place. On Staten Island, sixth place for girls goes to Gianna, while the top spot is held by Joseph.

In all, 120,457 babies were born in New York City in 2013, including 740 Jaydens and 630 Sophias, the Health Department said. There was a drop in the number of births in the city, with 2,774 fewer babies born in 2013 than 2012.

Brooklyn saw the most new babies, with 40,633, while 26,536 babies were born in Queens, 19,936 were born in The Bronx, 18,201 were born in Manhattan and 5,269 were born on Staten Island. The data is based on the mother's home address.

The five most popular boy names across the city were Jayden, Ethan, Jacob, Daniel and David. For girls, they were Sophia, Isabella, Emma, Olivia and Mia. Sofia, spelled with an "f," came in at No. 8.

Nationwide last year, Sophia was also once again the most popular girl's name, according to the Office of Social Security. Jayden came in ninth in the country while Noah, sixth in New York City, was the most popular boy's name in the United States.
