There is a lot to think about when choosing a name for your little one. Will it suit their personality? Will they be able to spell and pronounce it easily? Are there going to 10 other kids with the same name in his or her class when they start school? All these questions are sure to be running around your head, so take a look at some of the top names we expect to be all the rage in 2019.
2019 Baby Name Trends
Whilst classic names seem to be sticking around for 2019, there are some more unusual names that are expected to rise to stardom this year. As always, it is popular culture that drives many of the fashions when it comes to baby names, but here are some of the specific trends that will be inspiring future parents in 2019.
- Animated films and TV programmes: The box-office hit Peter Rabbit and the ever popular cartoon Paw Patrol, see some expecting names such as Beatrix, Chase and Ryder to rise up the rankings.
- Popular TV series: TV boxsets often determine the trending baby names so we expect to hear a few Game of Thrones names in playgrounds in a few years time.
- Gemstones: What better way to share how precious your little one is than by naming him or her after a rare gemstone? Parents are expected to opt for names such as Topaz and Onyx to have their children stand out from the crowd.
- Places: Whilst India has been becoming a more and more popular name for girls for some time now, you can expect to see names such as Dallas and Cairo hitting the scene for baby boys.
- The Royal Family: the name that Prince Harry and Meghan choose for their baby is sure to be a hit in 2019, and we will be looking at royal baby names nearer the time!
