Euphoria-inspired baby names are trending with 2022 parents

Pop culture has always helped influence trends.

From fashion to food, makeup and even what we name our children, pop culture has a tendency to sway and dictate public taste and opinion a great amount.

And right now, it seems the world at large is going ga-ga for hit teen drama, Euphoria.

Season two has just become available to stream, and according to the experts at Bella Baby, baby names inspired by the show are on the rise right now.

Using statistics from Baby Name UK and Google Trends, they were able to compile the following results.

“Now that the second season of Euphoria has returned to our screens, we predicted that a number of trends would emerge - one of those trends being baby names,” explains Caoimhe McGonagle for Bella Baby.

“The first season of the show, which aired back in 2019, dominated pop culture from fashion and makeup trends to conversations about young adults and the society they are now growing up in. It’s interesting to see that a number of the characters names have influenced baby names here in the UK, especially due to the fact that many of them are names that are typically found in the US.”

Here are just some of the Euphoria-inspired names that are trending with new parents right now:
