What are the hottest baby names for the year ahead?

To find out, Nameberry looked at which names have attracted the most unique views of a total of more than six million visits to the website's name pages in the past 30 days.

Then, the folks behind the popular baby naming website tracked which of those top names had increased 50 percent or more over the same period last year.

The result: A group of 50 baby names Nameberry sees as the very hottest right now. These names might not be showing up on international popularity lists quite yet. But the current spike in interest is sure to translate to much wider adoption in the months and years ahead.
