With 2019 around the corner, people are wondering what the new trends are for popular baby names. From celebrity-inspired choices to some quality classics that have consistently been in the top 100, these are our predictions for top baby names in the new year.
2018 Top 10
These names aren't going anywhere next year. According to babycenter.com, these were the top 10 baby names for boys and girls in 2018:
- Aria (lot's of Game of Thrones fans out there apparently)
I'm a big fan of boys names for girls. Ryan, Carter, Noah, and Finley are all popular choices that you'll expect to see frequently.
With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle expecting their baby next year, we're predicting some classic names taken from the royal family. George, Louis and Charlotte are obvious choices but also look for some more traditional choices with this trend: William, James and Alexander for boy names and Diana, Elizabeth and Victoria for girl names.
Love them or hate them, the Jenner/Kardashian empire is hard to miss, as are their unique choices for baby names. While Kylie was original this year with Stormi, the other names are still in the spotlight. Chicago, True, Saint, and Reign are all Kardashian approved.
Naming your baby after a city has been an ongoing trend with choices like Brooklyn, Jackson and Dakota being popular choices. Branch out with some less utilized names like Aspen, London, Raleigh, Phoenix, and Holland which are all gender neutral choices.
With the old-timey name trend going strong, we'd love to see some good country names thrown in the mix. Hank, Willie, Cash, Dolly, and Loretta are all fun options and will pay homage to your favorite singers.
