baby name predictions

By Abby Sandel

The US Social Security Administration is expected to release their annual list of the most popular baby names at the end of the week, just in time for Mother’s Day.

There are unofficial lists galore, including the ever-stylish Nameberry 100. But the Social Security data is the most accurate and complete record of all births registered in the US in calendar year 2014. Plus, they share a complete list of every single name given to at least five newborns in 2014.

It’s a lot of names. And yes, around here it’s like Christmas morning and the Super Bowl all rolled into one!

Will you be watching to see if your favorite names have become more popular? Are you hoping that a certain trend is over? Or are you cheering for a handful of names to catch on?

Here are nine questions I can’t wait to answer when we finally see the data on the most popular baby names.

Everyone from pop royalty to reality stars to actual royalty seems to be expecting at the moment. I look forward to when the birth announcements start rolling in so I can see if I was right or if I at least came close with any of these name predictions.

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are expecting their first child together. These two have been in the limelight since they were kids, yet they strike me as down-to-earth. I could see them using something a bit unique with laid-back ease. Nothing that’s over-the-top or trying too hard.

My guesses: Sawyer, Camden, Rowan, Ever, Sloan, Laurel

Future Top 10 names

By Abby Sandel, Appellation Mountain

We’re just days away from the new year!  As 2014 draws to a close, plenty of websites and hospital systems have released their top baby names for the past twelve months.

At Nameberry, Asher, Declan, and Atticus topped the boys’ list, while Imogen, Khaleesi, and Charlotte were favorites for girls.

The official 2014 US data doesn’t come out until May 2015.  But this early information lets us read the tea leaves and guess – or hope! – which names might come out on top when we see the official numbers in a few months.

Americans are more daring when it comes to naming daughters, and the numbers bear this out.

In 2013, just over 67% of girls born in the US received a Top 1000 name.  Boys, on the other hand, received a Top 1000 name nearly 79% of the time.

It makes predicting the most popular names of the future slightly more difficult when it comes to girls.  With everything from surnames – Madison and Addison – to enduring choices like Emily and Elizabeth in the current Top 20, it’s tough to say which direction parents will go in the future.

Or maybe we’ll just keep going in every possible direction.  This list is a little bit literary, slightly musical, occasionally globetrotting, sometimes unisex.
