According to Nameberry, one name set to trend next year is Avalon.

The name has a magical meaning with many links to the tale of King Arthur. The Bump revealed: “Avalon is said to be the island where the sword Excalibur was crafted, becoming a major feature of Arthurian mythology, similar to Camelot.”
