Baby names 2019: The top predicted baby names for next year

Prominent public figures tend to heavily skew baby name trends, especially over this past year.

But according to Namberry’s expert predictions, it looks like this is going to change in 2019.

Baby names are going to steer away from common names and have more natural themes.

Names of cities and countries will replace popular names and gender-neutral names will become prominent among newborns.

Predicted names are as follows:

Global Names











Gender-Neutral Names











Names related to Eastern religions like Zen and Rama will also gain popularity among 2019 babies.

Muted hues (Ash, Lavender, Fawn, Ivory, Olive, Lilac, Sage, etc.) and rare gems (Amethyst, Opal, Sapphire, Emerald, Jasper, Jet, Onyx, etc.) are predicted for next year as well.

The most fashionable consonant will be F, leading to names like Faye, Finnian, Frost, and Frankie.

While the hottest vowel will be U in stylish names like Hugo, Jude, Juniper, Luna, and Reuben.

Trendy three-letter names will include favourites such as Hal, Ida, Jem, Live, Van, and Rio.

Other popular names will trend towards animal names (Bear, Falcon, etc.), celebrity surnames, and Em- names:

Em- Names
