“A more obvious approach would be to use names and words and brands associated with luxury and great wealth – all of which are conceivable baby names,” says Linda.

Power Names Are In

Nameberry co-founder Pamela Redmond Satran recently shared the trends she expects to take off next year.

“Parents are embracing names from a range of fresh sources – gods and wild animals, spiritual beliefs and childhood heroes – that all embody power.”

So what names will be popular at the playgrounds next year? While you still expect parents to stick to some of the traditionally popular names (think Charlotte, William, Olivia, Jack and Sophia), you may notice a few more of these unique choices.

Mythological Monikers

God-like characters from ancient mythology will have a massive impact this year (and already have in celebrity baby name land). While this trend isn’t exactly new, you can expect even more divine names to hit the baby radar.

  • Boys: Thor, Odin, Loki, Zeus, Orion, Ajax, Ares and Mars
  • Girls: Hera, Athena, Luna, Juno, Persephone, Calliope, Clio, Freya, Rhea and Leto
  • Unisex: Atlas, Jupiter and Paris

Many parents are also turning to their own religious beliefs for namespiration with names like Messiah, God and Kali all rising in other countries.

Of course, Aussie parents may not get into this trend. After all, some of the god-like names that are on the rise, including Saint, Lord and Queen, are all banned baby names in Australia.
