Most Popular Names of 2020: The Predictions are in

Are you going to opt for a traditional name? Or go wild with something off-the-wall? If you are looking for inspiration, Baby naming site Nameberry has done the leg work for us and has shared their predictions for the most popular names of 2020.

The biggest name trend that’s set to continue in 2020 is choosing old fashioned names that were almost unheard of when we were growing up. In a bid to find something more unique, new parents are increasingly drawn towards the vintage names long lost in their family trees.

Aside from the old-school options, there are also some entirely new names topping the list. Some have traditional origins and have been given modern twist, while others have been taken from other cultures.
