Baby Names for 2016

If you’re currently expecting, you may be wondering what the most popular baby names were for 2015. It’s always interesting to see where your favorite baby names are falling on the most popular list. Well, BabyCenter recently came out with the top baby names for 2015 and they are:


2015 Baby Names

This, apparently, is Jackson’s third year to be number one for baby boys’ names and Sophie, Emma and Olivia and have been in the top three for girl names for the past four years. Wow! If you want to look at the top 100 names of each for the year, check it on their site here.


When it comes time to picking out a name for your baby, some people prefer naming their children new and original names while others like traditional or family names. I personally like all of the above, but I wouldn’t want to have a name too high on the list. That’s just me though. I was curious to hear what our Blogger Chicks thought about this since three of them are currently expecting. They have shared with me names that they like and think will be big in 2016.


Sarah said, “My 2016 baby name predictions are all resurgence of now ‘vintage-esque’ names. We’re bringing classic names back in shortened versions that don’t need nicknames. Simple, strong and confident names for the little ladies and gents of 2016.”


Since I go to quite a few births and help many new parents, I’m constantly hearing new baby names and have a good idea of which ones will be popular this upcoming year. I have come up with a list that I think will be the hottest and most popular baby names in 2016.


With so many options, it’s tough selecting the one name that’s right for your baby. If you’re looking for some extra help, Tiny Prints has created a great and easy baby name generator which highlights popular, biblical, celebrity and hipster names to get you inspired by simply adding your last name. You can see it here for some ideas and inspiration! You just may find the perfect name for your baby. 😉


Do you like popular names or do you prefer to have your child’s name not even close to a hot list? What are some names that you love and think will be a big hit in 2016? Share with me in the comments below. I want to know!

    Isla and Everly are my top picks for my baby girl due to arrive in May. I’m having so much trouble deciding. I’ve loved Isla longer but once I heard Everly I love it just as much now. How do I decide?!

    I just named my son Bennett, he was born 1/4! I hope it doesn’t become too popular, part of why I love it so much is because it’s uncommon, but not weird.

    We are naming our June baby Milo. I like that it’s not an overly common name but people will recognize it, and he won’t spend his whole life correcting people on how to pronounce or spell it. Like my name 😉 We also have a Cooper, another name that’s not super popular but I love it. Uncommon but not too different!

    Our son born 2/11 we named Patrick. Kind of went old school, but like it because chances of there being another Patrick in his class is slim to none! We like it like that!

    My baby due October 1 will either be Vivian Rose or Frankie June. Probably the first though since her sister who was born February 2:15 is Ava Christine. And Vivien just seems a little more glamorous

    I meticulously chose all 3 of my children’s names because they were seldom used. I spent hours scouring all name sites I could find to make sure they were nowhere even close to “popular”. I’m super bummed to see all 3 names on this 2016 list.

    We’re naming our daughter Quinn (she’s due in December.) I’ve always loved the name, I hope it doesn’t get insanely popular!

    I named my daughter Matilda. I was steering away from popular. And now it’s predicted to be popular? Sure hope not.

    Imogen! I love that name. I’m in the US. I have yet to talk to anyone that has heard of it. :/
    I know it’s popular in the U.K. And Australia. But here it’s a name I have to explain, spell, repeat.
    Thanks for any feedback.
