Just wondering what you all think the next 'on-trend' names are going to been...???

So long Lola and Alfie...Welcome???

LynetteScavo Mon 16-May-11 21:42:44

Delilah and Reuben.

hellojude Mon 16-May-11 21:42:48

Gabriel and Pippa??

I think Alfie's already been and gone, and I suspect Gabriel has peaked. I'm no too sure for a boy. For girls, I agree about Pippa, and would add Imogen.

Dorothy and Jago

do you think Imogen will rise lots?

It's always been around - rises a few places in the popularity lists, drops a couple etc.

Pippa probably will become more popular.

hmmm, boys a bit trickier. not sure.

GIRLS: Esme, Florence, Edie and Ivy

BOYS: Arthur, Wilfie, Bertie and I fear Rufus.

Old boys names like Arthur, Quentin, Wilfred will rise in popularity imo, as will girls names like Agatha, Elsie and Florence.

Why Pippa hmm...due to the Middletons?

TOWIL Mon 16-May-11 22:22:55

Imogen is already very popular. More popular than Lola!

UrsulaBuffay Mon 16-May-11 22:24:55

I think 'trendy' or 'on trend' is slightly different to popular or placement in the charts, correct me if I'm wrong. Yes Imogen is around 30 or so in the charts.

Ruby, Imogen,

Teddy, Monty.

MelinaM Mon 16-May-11 22:41:16

I long for the downfall of Eve, Evie, Ellie, Lily etc...enough alreadygrin

Agree with Delilah, Esme, Florence and Pippa for girlies. Albert and Arthur for the boys.

I'm adding:

Beatrice, Clementine, Kate, Sophia.

Alexander, Flynn, Louis, Rafe.

manicinsomniac Mon 16-May-11 23:57:34

Agatha?!?!? Seriously? One of the ugliest names in the world imo. Tied with Gertrude, Doris and Ethel.

Edith, Mary

Monty, Reuben

Marnie is definitely on the up. Agree with more unusual granny names like Dorothy, Agnes, Dora making a comeback too.
