Notes: Both the Michigan and the United States frequencies are calculated by counting the unique spelling of the name.  For example, in order to determine the frequency of the name "Glenn", babies named "Glen" would not be considered, even though the two names sound alike and would have a higher rank if both were counted as one.

Rates are per 1,000 male live births.
