Among the dozens of choices you’ll make for your baby, arguably one of the toughest to decide on is their name: for months, we mulled over baby names for a boy that I was just certain I was carrying, only to discover our little Leo or Mateo was actually a girl. Don’t get me wrong, we were elated. However, it was back to the drawing board.

We contemplated, researched, and bounced baby names off of one another. My husband and I have apparently been slighted by a few folks of the same moniker, making those easy names to eliminate from the list. If you’re currently as stumped as we were, take a look at what we think will be top baby names for 2018 below: old school names are cycling back through, some names have moved up (or down) the rankings considerably since 2017, and it’s still just as hard as ever to name an actual human being!
