The writers at Nameberry.com just released their predictions for the 100 hottest baby names of this year, based on the trends they’ve been spotting.
Now, there are a few somewhat ordinary names that made the list, like Dylan, Emilia, Remy, Sadie, Sasha, and Simone. But once you get past those, things get a little stranger.
One big trend they’re seeing is old-fashioned names making a comeback. Their list includes Amos, Baxter, Beatrice, Birdie, Clara, Esther, Frank, Goldie, Gus, Isadora, Lionel, Monty, Otis, Ozzie, Quincy, Ray, Reuben, Ruth, Tallulah, Vera, and Winston.
There are also some pop culture inspired names, like Archer, Arrow, Bowie, Thor, and Zelda.
And, of course, there are some that are just as crazy as possible, like Calliope, Echo, Indigo, Keziah, Lachlan, Loxley, McCoy, Osiris, Saskia, and Zinnia.
