30 baby names predicted to be popular in 2020

Settling on a name for your bundle can be tough.

Whatever name you pick has to be popular, but not so popular that they will be sharing the name with half of their eventual class at school.

It has to be unique, but not too unique. And, understandably, you’d want it to sound perfect with your surname.

It is, like we said, quite tricky.

And while there’s still a few weeks to go until the end of 2019, there are already some baby-naming trends emerging for next year.

Naming experts Nameberry have rounded up some of the names they are predicting to be popular in 2020.

They said that some of the names they reckon are going to be popular in 2020 are influenced by “high visibility celebrities or pop culture events while others contain a fresh spin on a stylish sound or form.”
