A baby name expert has revealed what our kids will be naming their kids – and if her predictions are true, our grandkids are going to have some pretty spectacular monikers!
The baby naming experts at Nameberry have dusted off their crystal ball and gazed three decades into the future, to discover what baby names will be popular in 2050. But how did they do it?
Pamela Redmond, the co-creator of Nameberry says after analysing baby name statistics and predicting baby name trends for the past few decades, they’ve discovered a big clue about baby names. That the next generation will choose baby names that their parents didn’t.
For example, those of us having babies right now are using names like Luna, Luca, Arlo and Arya. But 30 years ago, these names were pretty much relegated to the bottom of the popularity stakes, or didn’t exist at all. So it figures that this generation’s Lunas and Arlos will be using baby names that we aren’t really using right now.
So, to work out what our grandbabies will be named, the crew at Nameberry delved into thousands of names that were given to fewer that 25 babies in 2020. And they plucked 24 boy baby names and 24 girl baby names that are languishing at the moment, but they predict will be popular in 2050.
