Category: 2010 baby name predictions
What are as the hottest 2010 baby names trends? Here, our 15 top picks:
MOST FASHIONABLE CONSONANT
L, by far, with the booming fashionableness of almost every L name for girls, and most especially those with two L sounds: Lila, Lola, Layla, Leila, Lily, Lillian, Delilah, Tallulah, even Lulu and Lucille.
NEW “IT” VOWEL
E, with Emma taking over from Emily (now number 3) at the top of the girls’ list, and a range of E names for both boys and girls rising through the ranks: Ethan, Eden, Eleanor, Emmett, Eli, Eliza, Elijah, Ella, Evan, Eva, Eloise, Evangeline, Elliot, Esme, et nearly al.
LATEST GENDER-BENDING TREND
Male-female name equivalents: Auden and Audrey, Isaiah and Isabella, Theo and Thea. In fact, an association with a popular name of the opposite sex is enough to propel an unlikely choice to prominence: Edison on the coattails of Addison, for example, or Malachi hitching a ride with Makayla.
