Which names do people think will start to become popular over the next few years?

Which names have you started to hear more of recently that you think will increase in popularity?

I have heard Nancy and Mabel a lot lately!

Girls I think slightly less cute/frilly names will come in. So less Millie/Daisy/Ruby and more Silvia, June, Daphne, Lois, Irene, Mary.

Boys i’m not so sure what the next big names will be. Ezra and Reuben seem to be rising fast. Possibly Robert and Kenneth may be the next trendy ‘old man’ names

@daisypond I love Daphne!

I think Germanic and Scandi names will become more popular for girls: Hilda, Ingrid, Freya/Freja, Astrid, Agnes, Frida, Greta, Heidi

Edwardian names are going out of fashion, so next in fashion will be names of the 20s and 30s. They are already emerging - things like Daphne or Barbara. But they’ve not yet hit the mass market. Old Testament names for boys have been current for 20-30 years, so they will go out of fashion and be dated very soon.

I just hope we don’t get Gertrude, Wilbert, Bernard, Pamela, Kevin, Gary, type names (applies if you have these names!).

Lots of Adas, Penelopes and Willows in the last year or two. And I know about a million Teddys born in the last year or so.

For girls
Elsie, Violet, Aurora, Betsie

For boys
Arthur, Quentin, Hugo, Wilfred

Biblical boys names have been very popular for a while, maybe more of the girls names too..? Sarah, Ruth, Rachel, Hannah, Leah?

2littleninjas Thu 11-Jul-19 00:17:04

I have a Jude and when he was born there were none and that seems to be getting very popular

sweetkitty Thu 11-Jul-19 00:13:24

Latest two babies I’ve heard off were Alfie and Ella

Sophronia Thu 11-Jul-19 00:06:38

Old Testament boys names are popular so I can see people looking for alternatives to Noah, Reuben and Isaac - maybe Micah, Isaiah, Solomon, Asher, Asa, Caleb, Gabriel, Jonah and Seth will rise, among others.

The surprising one I’ve heard is Naomi - there’s two in Child2’s class.
There’s plenty that I’ve read on this thread that were on my list for a girl but didn’t use as I think they’re high on many lists - Astrid, Luna, Ophelia, Willow, Violet. I think Jasmine is a riser, more so with Aladdin being released.
For boys I haven’t a clue, I only ever hear the same few names - Archie, Franky, Harrison, I think they’ll stick around a few more years yet before we see a difference

HappyDinosaur Wed 10-Jul-19 19:10:38

Thinking about it I've also seen several newborn Ambers and 3 Rosies recently.

Elsies are everywhere. Reuben is becoming a lot more popular. Lots of biblical names for boys, actually.

whizzpopbangalang Tue 09-Jul-19 20:16:29

I know soooo many Ivy's! Sure that will be top 10 soon if not already

Cbeebiesrehab Tue 09-Jul-19 19:59:52

Boys names ending in IE will continue to dominate I think...every boy bar mine had an IE ending at a recent group we attend.
I have also met multiple Pippas recently, maybe one on the rise.

ourkidmolly Tue 09-Jul-19 17:36:54

Meant name not babe.

ourkidmolly Tue 09-Jul-19 17:36:41

I know of 3 Greys. Peculiar. Seems a drab colour to favour as a babe.

PrincessLouis Tue 09-Jul-19 17:23:48
