The Most Popular Baby Names Of 2019, So Far


When you first hear your baby's heartbeat or find out the gender, our minds undoubtedly swirl with so many thoughts about their health, our excitement to meet them, how our lives will change, and most definitely what we are going to name them. For many couples this can cause friction, for others their names have been planned out long before they started trying to get pregnant. Either way, the naming process is super fun.

Whether you are trying to stick with a family name, a traditional name or something unique, it's always interesting to hear where the rest of the world lines up and if the names you are considering are popular nationally. Names.org, the website that keeps track of everything baby name associated, just released their 2019 list featuring the top names for both boys and girls in 2019 so far, and you just might be surprised what tops the two lists.

The year obviously isn't over yet, just being April, but this data showcases the first quarter and what we're seeing so far this year. Many parents look at this list to help decide what they are going to name their baby. Some parents opting for names that are on the popular list for their first child, or to pick a name that goes well with a sibling. Other parents like to scan the list to make sure their favorite name isn't on the favorite list, preferring names that are a little less popular.
