Top 7 Baby-Naming Trends for 2013

I can’t get enough about names! What a wonderful honor it is to be able to name another human being, and it’s a ton of fun thinking of names, learning new ones, and sharing name ideas – especially for twins! Playing the name game has been increasingly enjoyable lately, since my spouse and I are getting closer and closer to a legitimate list of names, and agreeing more and more on what we like.

You can imagine my delight when I came across the post from Nameberry, a site where they post about what they expect to be the hottest baby-naming trends in 2013. It’s both humbling and exciting to learn that two of my potential name choices are trendy. It’s somehow validating (though I’m hardly looking for validation when it comes to my choices) and also disappointing to realize just how not original my thinking is.

What about you? Do any of the names you’re considering fall under these hot baby-name trends for 2013?

Top Baby-Naming Trends for 2013

Wildflower Names

Lily and variations of Rose remain popular, but the newest flowery naming trend takes a step away from the traditional garden and looks toward the great wide open. Naming your child after a wildflower is expected to be a fresher way to include botanical names in 2013. Look for a rise in Clover, Poppy, Juniper, and Maple.
