Expecting a little one soon and haven’t decided on a name yet? Want to know what’s popular and what isn’t? You’re in luck: baby-name website Nameberry recently released its list of the most popular baby names for 2016!
The rankings are based on the names that have been trending on their site for the first half of the year. Names that have attracted the most page views from parents-to-be are the ones that Nameberry predicts will be the most used in the near future.
The results? It’s time for the Liams and Sophias of the world to make room for Olivias and Ezras! While there are some overlaps from last year’s most popular baby names—such as Emma, Ava, Declan and Oliver—it looks like the trend for the first half of 2016 is more classic names, like Eleanor, Rose, Theodore and Oscar.
So whether you have a name in mind already or not, check out the lists to to get some inspiration (or to make sure you stay away from trendy names altogether). Here are the most popular baby names for 2016.
