Baby names and trends are constantly changing. Trend factors include the royal family, TV shows and the tendency to choose shorter names. Following you can find the most popular baby names.
Choosing a Baby name is a very big commitment. Your Child will have this name literally for his or her whole life. So you might find yourself asking questions like do you want a really unique name? A trending or popular name? A specific spelling of a popular name?
The social security administration is keeping track of baby names all the way back to 1879. Looking back at previous years Emma and Liam have been popular for a while and are still on top of the list.
Shorter Baby Names
Overall baby names are getting shorter. Names with four letters are getting very popular. (Makes sense with Emma and Liam) Especially the names for girls like Luna, Mila or Cora.
Parents like names from other countries that are more international like like Kai or Axel as well as Scandinavian names like Bjorn or Anders and even Thor.
Names inspired by the royal family will never get old. Anything to do with the english royal family has been trendy. According to BabyCenter the interest in Meghan jumped 49% right after the royal wedding.
