Names in Puerto Rico

The SSA has released baby names from Puerto Rico (and other US territories, which I will get to later) going back to 1998. As far as I can tell, this is the first time they have released Puerto Rican names! Puerto Rico is a territory of the USA, although not a full state (i.e., they pay Social Security and Medicare taxes, but not income taxes to the US Government, and have no representation in US Congress). I have grouped the most popular names of 2017 by spelling here:

Top Girls' names for 2017 in Puerto Rico

Top Puerto Rican Boys' Names for 2017

In addition, here is a list of all the of the names that are unique to Puerto Rico. That is, all the names that have shown up on the SSA list in Puerto Rico since 1998 that never made it to the USA list:
