Choosing a name for your baby is a significant decision, and it requires careful consideration. One of the most exciting parts of being pregnant is imagining your baby’s personality and personality traits, including their name. What baby names are trending?
In 2023, we’ve seen a lot of popular baby names inspired by nature, mythology, pop culture, and unique spellings. In this blog post, we’ll discuss some of the trends in baby names in 2023 that might inspire you when choosing what to name your new bundle of joy.
In 2023, names inspired by nature, including flowers, plants, and animals, are becoming increasingly popular. Names such as Willow, Violet, Ivy, Aurora, and Forest have become popular for baby girls.
Boys’ names inspired by nature include River, Jasper, Rowan, Leo, and Phoenix. These names are lovely, unique, and, in some cases, have significant meanings associated with the natural world.
Names inspired by mythology continue to be popular in 2023. Greek and Roman names remain a favorite, including Athena, Apollo, Aurora, and Atlas.
Norse mythology names, such as Odin, Freya, Thor, and Loki, are also growing in popularity. These names are unique but powerful and can leave a lasting impression.
Pop culture-inspired names
Pop culture has always been a source of inspiration when it comes to baby names. Celebrities and their babies consistently influence naming trends. For example, the name Khai, inspired by Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid’s newborn daughter, was a hot topic in 2021.
Other pop-culture-inspired names include Stormi (from Kylie Jenner’s daughter), Luna (from Chrissy Teigen’s daughter), and Archie (from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son).
Traditionally spelled names are taking a backseat to more unique spellings in 2023. Instead of the classic Emily, we now see Emmalee, Emilee, Emelee or Emilie.
This trend is not only for girls; we can see the same in boys’ spellings. Names such as Jaxson, Jaxon, and Jackson are now common. It makes a frequently used name a bit more unique to the individual.
Gender-neutral names are also prevalent in 2023. Choosing a gender-neutral name can encourage equality and inclusivity. Unisex names such as Avery, Ellis, Jordan, Finley, and Taylor work well for both boys and girls.
Naming your newborn can be a daunting task, but it’s important to remember that it’s also a lot of fun. Whether you choose a classic name or a modern one, always take into consideration the name’s meaning or what it represents.
Choosing a name based on a trend might not be the best decision since trends are likely to change eventually, and your baby’s name is for a lifetime. Have fun, do your research, and go with something that feels right. The perfect name awaits you, and we cannot wait to hear it!
