In Australia I’m seeing a lot of Matilda and Sophie/Sophia/Sofia (which sux because I love this name :() for girls and along with the “-ayden” names – Angus, Noah, and Adam for boys. I’m sure I’m missing some…

I guess at least most are traditional with traditional spellings so even thou my FB is full of kids with these names I don’t cringe when I see them – thou “-ayden” names make me a little cringey but that’s because the names have bad associations for me.

Everyone I know having girls is naming their daughters Harper. For boys, I’m seeing a lot of Ethans and Camerons. When choosing a name, we decided to stay away from the top 100 or even top 150 if possible.

All the names that sound like last names:

Jackson, Grayson, Cooper, Taylor, Kennedy

Things like that.

Oh, also Declan.

Finlay, Isabelle (plus variants), Evie (plus variants) are the popular children’s names where I work at the moment! i think when I get pregnant, I’m going to look at the names in the school and nursery and NOT choose the ones that appear most frequently!

Misspelling are very trendy and super popular. Mackenzie, Mckenzy, McKinzie, Makenzy, etc.  Madysin, Maddison, Maddysen, etc.  Carley, Karli, Karlee, Carleigh, etc.  Makayla, Mickayla, McKaela, etc.  Spelling it wrong doesn’t make it interesting or unique, it makes it look foolish.

 

Or creating your own names by changing something small in order to avoid a “popular” name. Olivia becomes Alivia or Livia. Emily become Emmeline or Amelie or Emmaleigh. Evelyn becomes Evalyn or Evangeline.

 

Or old names are “made new” by adding and removing. Ashley becomes Ashlyn. Beverly becomes Everly. Madison becomes Addison. Zoe becomes Zoey. Brooke becomes Brooklyn.

 

Probably the most annoying trend is all the boys names being used for girls. I really dislike Elliot and Taylor and Riley and Charlie and Peyton and Jordan.

I have heard of literally 1000 baby girls named Brooklynn. (ok maybe not 1000) And lots of Finlay’s right now. Someone on my facebook just named their daughter Fynleigh… unnecessary Y. ugh.

Grace as a middle name.  No exaggeration the last 7 friends/family who have had baby girls gave them the middle name Grace.
