Baby Name Trends: Heading Up

Baby Name Trends

Yesterday we looked at our list of names that peaked in 2007 and predicted general trends.  Today, we’re identifying those names we expect to be hearing a lot more of in the future.

Not included on this list are the trendy choices like Addison and Aiden that everybody expects to see at the top of the pop chart.  We’re also setting aside those 2007 favorites we expect to see heading downward – Kaylee, for instance – along with names mentioned in yesterday’s post.

More interesting are the unusual names and the unexpected classics we see peaking on the 2007 list but predict will rise yet again in 2008 and will be around for years to come.  Many of these names sound unusual enough now, but BE WARNED: Most are destined to get a lot more popular.  Those choices:
