The Wild List Of Baby Names That'll Be Popular In 2020 Has Been Revealed

You probably haven't heard of most of them but having a unique baby name is clearly still a top priority for a number of expectant parents.

And many of the names as it turns out, weren't even around 10 years ago, with more and more parents seeking out of the box baby names in order to make their offspring stand out from their mate in the other class.

Popular baby name website Nameberry has released its list of top ten boys' names, girls' names and unisex names expected to spike in popularity and blow up big time next year in 2020.

While the names won't appear on any popular baby name list currently as they are predictions, the observations are based on which names saw the biggest search increases on the site so far for the year when compared to last year.

UK teachers have shared the names of their students who tend to be the naughtiest and best behaved and the results are very interesting.

"Our top baby names are a radical departure from the official national list, which suffers from a considerable time lag. We won’t know which names were really used most often for babies in 2020 until May of 2021," Nameberry co-creator and CEO Pamela Redmond Satran said.

The lists are a collection of 'newly-minted' names, old names that are expected to make a comeback as well as names discovered from other countries. The lists, with names in order of popularity, are below:
