Another year has passed (thankfully, goodbye 2020!), and a new year has begun. The true highlights of 2020 were the adorable babies that were welcomed into the world. We always love to see what baby names are climbing the charts year after year. The baby names of 2021 are looking similar to 2020, but there are a few new ones!

Below you’ll find the top 100 baby names of 2020 as well as the coolest and hottest baby names we predict for 2021. While researching baby names, it’s no surprise that we saw a major increase in the names Kobe (after the late Kobe Bryant), Gianna (after Kobe’s teenage daughter), and Kamala (our new Madam Vice President). Two names that took a dive in popularity were Chad and Karen. This came as no surprise to us.

Here are the most popular baby names of 2020. See which baby names rose and fell compared to last year’s list!
