Hey there, soon-to-be parents. Are you expecting a tiny bundle of joy in 2024 and totally stumped on what to name them? Trust us, you’re not alone. Naming a human is a huge deal, right? But don’t worry – we’ve got you covered with the latest scoop on baby naming trends.

Vintage Names Are In

You read that right, folks! Old is the new ‘new.’ Forget all the modern, trendy names you’ve heard lately—vintage names like “Eleanor” and “Arthur” are back in a big way. They’ve got that classic charm and sophistication that just never goes out of style. So, if you’re into timeless elegance, you might want to raid your grandma’s attic for some vintage inspiration.

Nature Names Are Taking Over

Climate change is real, and so is the trend of naming kids after all things nature-y. I’m talking “Willow,” “Sage,” and “River”—you get the picture. These names aren’t just cute; they’re also a subtle shout-out to Mother Earth. So if you’re eco-conscious, or just love the great outdoors, this trend’s for you.

Gender-Neutral Names Are Where It’s At

The future is equal, and so are baby names. Names like “Alex,” “Morgan,” and “Taylor” are hitting the charts for both boys and girls.

Names Straight from the Silver Screen

You binge-watch your fav series, and now you can name your baby after your fav character. Whether it’s a badass superhero or a relatable rom-com star, expect to see more kiddos running around with names inspired by pop culture.

Go Global or Go Home

Diversity is the spice of life, and more parents are taking a world tour when picking names. From the Irish charm of “Aiden” to the African elegance of “Amara,” multicultural names are totally having a moment.

Names Inspired by the Digital World

Tech’s not just changing how we live; it’s also influencing what we name our kids! “Siri,” “Elon”—yeah, these names are a thing now. If you’re a tech junkie, this is your playground.

DIY Names

Why go for ‘John’ when you can have ‘Johne’ with a unique twist? Parents are jazzing up traditional names with their own special flair. Because let’s face it, your baby is one-of-a-kind, and their name should be too.
