I love when this list comes out! Names.org just released their annual predictions for the Most Popular Baby Names of 2022. Will they be classic names? Trendy names? They base this list on hard facts, by the way, they get their data from the Social Security Administration. These predictions are almost always 95% accurate so here is what you can expect the most popular names to be in 2022:
The 10 Most Popular Boy’s Names in 2022:
10 Most Popular Names for Girls in 2022:
Liam is so popular it is estimated that over 18,960 babies will get that name in 2022.
Olivia ranks No. 1 for girls and an estimated 16,510 babies will have that name in 2022.
Does this change your decision when picking a name? I thought I was so original when I picked Isabella and Sophia years ago but they were so popular they are still on the list! My daughter has 5 Sophias in her class lol.
Honorable mentions for Boys include: Theodore and Mateo. My BFF just gave birth to a Mateo!
Honorable Mentions for Girls: Camila, Harper, Elizabeth, Sofia, Mila, and Ella. All so cute! I love all these names but I'm really glad I picked the ones that I did for my girls. We ended up calling Sophia "Fia" anyway and that always seems to be an original.
