Searching for the perfect name for your baby is one of the biggest questions of impending parenthood. While the most popular names list is reported various times in any given year, it usually is composed of collected information from the previous year. So it’s not exactly the latest trends especially in our age of instant information.
To this end, one internet tool I find pretty interesting is Nameberry’s “Names searched right now” live stream at the top of their homepage. It lets you know what other expectant moms are considering now, not last year.
This is especially helpful because the number one complaint I hear of time and time again from parents who regret the name they chose for their child, is that when they picked it, it wasn’t popular but now that their kid is in preschool, too many classmates have the same name.
As of this posting, the current baby names being researched right now are:
Names that keep popping up repeatedly since I began this story are Aveline, Boston, Landry, and Evelyn.
Of course, this is no indication of which names the parents are actually picking out for their baby, but it’s fun nonetheless. It also gives you a selection of some names you might have otherwise not heard of before.
What is your favorite baby name right now?
