Parents can spend months picking out a name for their children to ensure they get the huge decision right.
Whether you’re considering a traditional moniker or something more unusual, there’s always trends in baby names as some come back into fashion while others fade away.
And now pregnancy and parenthood company Bounty has predicted the names it expects to be on the rise with new parents in the next 10 years to help you get ahead of the curve, as reported by Hull Live.
Bounty looked at more than 300,000 names registered in the last 12 months to track the highest climbers and identify which name trends are set to take off.
For girls, it predicts Nellie to soar in popularity, followed by Elodie and Anastasia – and for boys it’s Chester, Levi and Hudson. Here’s the top 40 predictions:
Names for girls predicted to trend this decade
Names for boys predicted to trend this decade
Both lists feature references to popular culture, with Maeve and Otis as the lead characters in Netflix‘s hit series Sex Education, as well as names linked to A-list celebrities such as Margot Robbie and Idris Elba.
The list features more traditional names, as Sophia, Olivia and Amelia made up the top three spots for girls, with few of the predictions for the next decade making the final rankings.
And it was a similar story for boys, where the top three were Muhammad, Noah and Oliver.
