There are lots of lists of baby names as you’ll all know. They all differ a little but will have the same names at the core!
Let’s be honest, choosing a name for your baby is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make!
One of the big trends for 2018 is gender neutral or unisex names. These are very popular amongst modern parents and celebrity mums and dads.
Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, with North, Saint and Chicago, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively with a daughter called James and Ashton Kutcher, whose daughter is called Wyatt. Other popular ones are :-
Alex- Alby- Addison-Archer-Blair-Brady-Casey-Cody-Dakota,-Devon-Dylan-Eden-Florian-Harper-Kerry-Lane-Logan-Lumi-Morgan, Marley-Piper-Reese-River-Scout-Taylor-Xen.
So lots to choose from and plenty more if you look!
The more traditional boys and girls lists have been fairly predictable in recent years with ARIA being the only addition to the girls top 10!
The top 20 are:- Olivia- Sophia-Amelie-Lily-Luna-Ava-Isla-Aria-Mia-Isabella-Nora-Ella-Charlotte-Grace-Evie-Maya-Violet-Harper-Sadie-Stella
For the boys the most popular is Muhammad with Oliver and Noah close behind.
Top 20 for boys are:- Muhammad, Oliver- Noah-George- Harry- Leo- Charlie-Jack-Corin-Freddie-Jasper-Oscar-Arthur-Henry-Jacob-Archie-Joshua-Theo-Ethan-Lucas-Logan.
As you would imagine Royal names are eternally popular like Victoria and Elizabeth with Meghan starting to grow in popularity. Fictional character names are showing an increase too with Atticus- Darcy-Eloise-Esme-Kairi-Holden-Katniss and Zuzu.
The names may change a little over the next 6 months of 2018, but we all know that it’s fun trying to find, just the right one for our little bundle of loveliness! 💕💕
