Can you believe this is the top baby name of 2019?

Royalty is to blame for this popular name

July 10, 2019


Thanks to royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the name Archie is the top baby name so far in 2019.

On the girls side, Isla tops the list so far this year.  The peeps at Nameberry have said it’s due to fans of actress, Isla Fisher.

Rounding out the top five for girls are Olivia, Aurora, Ada and Charlotte.  And the boys are Milo, Asher, Jasper and Silas.

Are you (or were you) a trend follower when you named your baby?  Or, did you name your kids after someone in the family?  It’s kind of like handing down the traditional family names.

I’m actually on the side of naming kids after some well-known person when they are born.  I know a few, “Brett Lorenzo’s”.  A few friends named their boys after Green Bay Packer legend, Brett Favre.  My wife’s cousin was in love with ‘80’s pop star, Corey Hart.  Yup, she named her first born, “Corey” after the, “I wear my sunglasses at night” singer!

Are you expecting?  Would you name your son/daughter after a celeb?  Let me know on FacebookInstagram or Twitter!
