    Baby Names for the Next Generation - Predictions By Pam

    Hello Berries, here is an interesting article in the UK's Daily Mail newspaper. Predictions are from Nameberry's Pamela Redmond Satran. I've bolded my faves. What are your faves?

    What will our children be calling their babies? Names of the future look to nature with Everest, Beach and Nile among top predictions by Sadie Whitelocks


    Baby names Olivia and Ethan belong to Baby Boomer and Generation X parents; while Adelaide and Asher continue to hold top spots in polls for millennial moms. But what about the next generation of parents?


    Pamela Satran, the woman behind the website Nameberry.com and author of several name books, believes that the world map will be a major source of inspiration for parents in the next baby-naming ‘style wave’ - with nature-inspired monikers Everest, Beach, Nile and Oceana predicted among the top choices for the future.


    Already this week, the boy's name Beach witnessed a 60per cent spike in popularity. Nameberry pegs it as the perfect pick 'for parents who relish sun, sand, and surf' while 'forest lovers can spell it Beech, like the tree.'

    Meanwhile the unisex name Everest was up by nine per cent for girls.


    Commenting on the trend, Ms Satran told ABC News: 'There's a growth in the popularity of 'place' names.


    'Place names that are popular today, like Savannah and Dakota, are paving the way to more adventurous place names in years to come.'

    Also predicted to be popular down the line are names from ancient cultures.

    For example, Nero and Apollo for boys and Minerva for girls.


    Ms Satran said her predictions have been pretty accurate to date.


    In 1988 she said the name Adelaide would be popular among millennial moms.

    Indeed, over the years it has risen up the charts and in 2012 actress Katherine Heigl selected it as for the name of her second daughter.


    'Just like fashion forecasters are looking at what's in style now and predict what will be coming up in 10 or 20 years, we do the same,' Ms Satran concluded.


    'We look at origins of names, the sounds that are attracting people and pop culture influences.'


    Nameberry's predictions left many commenters divided.


    One wrote: 'Nero? Like the emperor who “fiddled while Rome burned”…I don’t think so.'

    But another added: 'I really love Beach / Beech. We are beach and forest lovers. I don’t know if my husband would go for it, but I love names that remind me of those peaceful lovely places.'

    Eeeeeeeeh...I hope she's wrong. Except, I did consider Cyprian for my little guy two years ago, but I decided it was too out-there. The only ones that rank as "like," or "okay," are Oceana, Persephone, Rhiannon, Rowena & Viveca; Apollo, Cyprian, Everest, Falconer, Freeman, Lazarus & Willis.

    Doon and Gower are truly horrendous.
    My March arrival:
    Dulcinea Tesla
    We call her Daisy
    in honor of my mom.

    I would be in the next generation of parents - I know I wouldn't use any of the boys list, and only Eulalie, Enid(maybe), Rhiannon, Rowena and Minerva(maybe) for girls. So far, the kids I know from my generation with babies have chosen trendy names with 'yooneek' spellings.

    Rhiannon's actually dated in Australia it's a 90's name here. I don't think any of them will get popular except Rocco which is trendy here.

    Enid and Minerva for girls and Everest on a boy are probably as adventurous as I would go. Paladin is the only name that is a little too out there for me, I just thing of my character I play in Hearthstone and WoW.
