20 scandi-chic names for your winter baby inspired by hygge

The world has looked to Scandinavia for all things hip and cool when it comes to trends, design and fashion for years. 

Heck, even Disney went to the mountains and fjords of Norway to get their inspiration for Frozen! (Which, being Norwegian, clearly makes me and my 5-year-old a little biased in saying it is their best princess film to date – naturally).

But never mind your Stokke high chair or that gorgeous Leander cot you blew your budget on, now it is all about Hygge.

Hygge is the Danish way of expressing all things cosy and pleasurable. It has inspired homely recipes, cosy home interiors and now people are using all the warm comforting images for baby name inspiration!

Here are our picks of some of the hippest and most Scandi-chic baby names currently trending in Sweden, Denmark and Norway:
