    Baby Name Trends for 2020

    And as for what's still to come? Here are a few baby name trends on the horizon:

    Scandinavian names

    There's more to love about the lands up north than just Ikea and ABBA. While Magnus, a popular Scandinavian royal baby name, has been rising in popularity for the past several years, there are a few other intriguing names on the rise, including BjornFreya, and Astrid. (Expect Astrid especially to rise, given its usage in the new Netflix show, The Politician.)

    Gender-neutral baby names

    Why go through the trouble of battling over two sets of baby names when you can settle on one perfect set? These days, more and more names are able to work for both boys and girls, as evidenced by Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds (with daughter James), and Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis (with daughter Wyatt). Among the names that are uberpopular for both sexes you'll find CameronEmerson, Nova, Parker, Sage, and Noa.

    Vintage baby names

    Just like fashions, baby names definitely make a comeback eventually. (Yep, someday Jennifer, Lisa and Ashley will come back into vogue!) Among the red hot baby names for 2020, you'll find Nancy and Maxine on the rise—your guess is as good as mine as to whether parents are inspired by the bad-ass chicks on Stranger Things, or the Congresswomen. And Archie is only going to rise even more on the charts, as Meghan and Harry have brought the name into the spotlight. (And speaking of Meghan, her name will likely continue to be red hot for girls—despite the fact it previously charted high back in the 1980s.)

    Hawaiian baby names

    People are going way west for baby name inspiration, with poetic Hawaiian names like KoaKeanu, and Nalani all making major leaps up the baby naming charts. But the biggest name from the 50th state is likely Kailani/Keilani/Kaylani, which is among the top risers, no matter how you spell it.

    Wild flower baby names

    While there may be more Roses and Lilies around, there are plenty of more exotic blooms to choose from—and many parents are going with something bolder. Consider names like Azalea, Magnolia, Dahlia, Poppy, and Juniper to get you started.

    Pop culture (of course)

    All the parents out there who named their daughters Khaleesi or Daenerys may tell you to think twice about choosing a name from the zeitgeist, but many, many parents get baby name inspiration from the shows, movies and books they love. The popularity of the Mother of Dragons (and the names inspired by it) may have waned, but names like BrienneTyrionSnow, and Arya still get a bump from Game of Thrones superfans. (Just skip Aegon, please.)
    With the latest Star Wars trilogy coming to a close just as 2019 ends, expect Kylo to continue to rise in popularity (barring any really awful twists in the tale). And perhaps, Rey will finally get a bump among girls—though it's definitely a favorite for boys.
