These baby names are going to be the most popular in 2020
Bloom&Wild have predicted the most popular baby names of 2020 and we're obsessed with them. There are obvious royal and Disney influences so we're sure many expectant mums are going to adore these names.
Check out the top baby names of 2020 below:
Ivy also looks set to continue creeping up the charts, thanks to Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy. The seven-year-old hit the headlines recently after her mother claimed her child was a ‘cultural icon’ as part of a long-running dispute to have Blue Ivy’s name trademarked. Could her twin brothers Rumi and Sir Carter also start to make an impact in 2020?
With the live-action version of Aladdin raking in $1.050bn at the global box office in 2019, we think that Jasmine will make something of a comeback.
With the royal birth of Prince Harry and Meghan’s son last year, Bloom & Wild expect to see a surge in popularity for the name Archie. In the past, data has shown similar uplift in royal baby names such as Charlotte and George.
One of 2019's most popular TV shows has been the BBC’s Killing Eve. Despite the show’s more gruesome side, we think the name is set to take off into 2020. Shows such as Peaky Blinders saw a similar trend last year, proving that the characters personalities don’t necessarily deter new parents from using their names for inspiration.
Ed Sheeran was one of the biggest selling artists of 2019, which could lead to a surge in babies being named Ed and Edward next year. It certainly helps that he’s sharing his name with a very famous royal too.
Meghan Markle is one of the most googled celebrities and her name has barely been out of the news. Based on this, it is expected that there will be an increase in the number of children being named Meghan, especially with this more unusual spelling in comparison to the more widely known 'Megan'.
With multiple top ten hits, Ariana Grande has been growing in popularity and was one of the most steamed stars of 2019. Since 2011 the name as increased from just 145 to 458 Ariana’s born in 2018. We see this trend continuing into the new year.
Pop singer, Billie Eilish was relatively unheard of a year ago however, her sudden fame suggests there could be an equally sudden increase in the number of babies being named Billie and potentially Eilish too in 2020.
