The Biggest Name Trends from the 2010s
A New York Times analysis found that vintage names (think Eloise and Clyde), retro nicknames as full names (Millie and Gus), contemporary gods and goddesses (like Calliope and Theo), names from pop culture and media (Arya, Kylo), names of places (from Egypt to Harlem), unisex names (Remy, Sutton), and international names from across the globe (Bjorn and Khalid) have all been trendy ways to name babies in the past 10 years.
There’s no doubt that the 2020s will witness new trends and many are predicting that names beginning with C will be on the downswing due to the coronavirus pandemic, especially Cora and Corina, whereas positive-sounding names like Faith, Hope, Patience, and Bliss may experience a surge in popularity.
