Predicting top baby names of the future

How can you know if the names you choose for your little ones have staying power? We’ve got other tips on predicting the next big baby names besides checking out Nameberry’s list of popular names for girls and boys.

Know the pop culture

Film, TV, music, literature, the royal family, and celebrity babies may hugely influence the next big baby names, so it is crucial to do your research.

Recently, Bridgerton baby names have become a trend that you must watch out for in the coming years. Also, the pop culture phenomena Game of Thrones to Harry Potter to the Marvel franchise have had a significant impact on what parents worldwide are naming their kids.

Check the current trends

Rising baby names are trending for a reason. Unless that reason is due to current pop culture, it often has to do with style and sound.

Name constellations can have a huge impact as well. These are name groups that share a central sound. For example, the “La-La” baby girl names like Lola, Lila, Layla, and Lily. Another example is the famous -Ayden group of baby boy names by superstar Aiden in the early 2000s.

If you’re looking for a popular baby name for the next coming years, be sure to look into trending categories of names in terms of style and sound.

Check out the Australian open government data

The Australian government keeps records of the most popular baby names. You can search the database by year, state, and gender to see which names were most popular when your child was born. The data goes all the way back to the 1900s, so you can even compare your child’s name to those of previous generations.

Although the government doesn’t release the exact number of babies given each name, they provide a ranking of the most popular names.

Look at the baby naming trends in other countries

Sometimes, what’s popular overseas will eventually make its way over here.

So if you’re looking for something popular, checking out baby name lists from other countries can be a good place to start your search.

Look at historical patterns

Believe it or not, history can actually tell us a lot about future baby name trends.

Many of today’s most famous names were also popular 100 years ago—think John, Mary, William, and Elizabeth.

Predicting the next big baby names can feel like an impossible task. However, if you keep current trends, pop culture influences, trends in other countries, and historical patterns in mind, you’ll be one step ahead of the game. And who knows? Maybe your baby girls and baby boys will be the trendsetters for the next generation of babies!
