Inspiration for your baby’s name can come from so many places — family members, TV, movies, books, and even celebrities, just to name a few. If you’re currently expecting, a few of the most popular baby names in 2021 may already on your radar. And if not, perhaps this list of names that are trending right now could spark an idea or two.
While Karen is out for girls (because of course it is), names like Olivia and Emma that have been favored by parents for years are still as popular as ever. Names rooted in mythology and made popular by celebrities, like Luna and Maeve, are also seeing a surge for baby girls.
Traditional-sounding names like Theodore and Atticus are popular names for boys right now, so 2021 may be the year that giving your baby an old man name actually becomes the cool thing to do. Braxton, Noah, Finn, and Silas are all similar in nature, but do lean more modern.
Names that start with the letter A are definitely having a moment — Amelia, Arlo, Aurora, and Aurelia are all trending baby names in 2021. Not to mention, superstar Mandy Moore and Princess Eugenie both gave birth to babies named August in 2021. (As an Ashley and mom to an Austin, I may be slightly biased toward A-names, but the facts are the facts.)
Read on to see what other names have topped the charts so far this year.
