Some baby name trends last for decades – even centuries (William, Sophie), while others are more fleeting. And it looks like volcano monikers are on the horizon right now.

According to baby naming website Nameberry, lava-inspired baby names – especially in Scandinavia – are all the rage at the moment.

According to Nameberry, “Etna has occasionally been used for girls. So has Rainier for boys.” Both are volcano names.

In Iceland, the most popular girls name in 2018 was Hekla, which is an Icelandic volcano.
