Baby Names 2011: Hottest Trends to Track Now

Want the hottest baby name trends for 2012? Check out our baby names 2012 story.

Baby names 2011 signal a new lighter feel in the air and more optimistic outlook for our offspring.   Here, our predictions for the top trends for baby names 2011.

Biggest Big Picture Trend: Two-for-one names

Picture 1 of 13

For baby names 2011, we predict the emergence of two-for-one names: very proper proper names – think Louise and Arthur, Beatrix and Abraham – with lighter-than-air, even silly nicknames: Lulu, Bee, Bunny, and Bram. From the parents’ perspective, they get two very different names for the price of one, which can be an advantage to children as they grow up too: You can be Lulu at the nightclub, Louise on the Harvard app.

If Twilight names are out (finally!), what authors or books would be in now or will be?

Abby Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 6:49 am

Great list! Can’t wait to meet all those babies called Stanley, Roscoe and Plum!

@BasicSand – The Hunger Games maybe? Katniss for girls and Gale for boys!

Gaby Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 7:22 am

Oh please, please, please don’t call your daughters Fanny. If they ever come to England, they will be carrying a name still very strongly associated not even with the behind, but with ladies’ even more unmentionables. Not good.

Katie Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 7:57 am

@Abby- Yes! Can’t wait to see little Katniss, Gale, Peeta and Prim running around the playground. 🙂

pam Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 8:38 am

We did think about The Hunger Games but decided the world wasn’t quite ready to name transition from Twilight to a new book (especially with Gale for boys). Maybe for 2012

KM Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 9:57 am

Hey, now, let’s not talk up Roscoe too much before I get to use it. I already had another favorite boy name (Jasper) ruined by Twilight, so I would like Roscoe to stay off the radar.

Megan Says:

We were part of the nickname trend with our youngest little girl, born in May. We wanted to call her Maisie but weren’t sure if it would translate well as an adult. We named her Margaret (after my grandmother) and call her Maisie. Best of both worlds for us.

Bella Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 10:08 am

I see Gale on a boy very nicely, spelled this way, of course! It seems like a handsome boys name.

Primrose and a rise in the ‘Kat’ names could happen, but I don’t think Peeta is ready for the Name Hunger Games. 😉

I’m into the old mans names coming back, but my favorite (which I don’t think I could ever use) Sheldon, didn’t make the cut. 🙁

What about noun names? Are they in, out, up, down or retisent?

Elisabeth@YCCII Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 10:08 am

This is a great blog! I’m a “twofer” namer myself, and I bear witness to the floral and gender bending trends every day. I also know quite a few Orions and Stellas, one young Stanley, a Harriet, and a baby Roscoe.

Devon Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 1:44 pm

I LOVE Katniss but there is no way my husband would go for it and it wouldn’t fit with our last name. I would love to see it on others though.

tarynkay Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 1:47 pm

I like the idea of formal given names with optional nicknames.

I am alarmed by the dog-names for babies trend. I’m speaking here about particularly egregious examples, like Spike and so forth. I am also always taken aback when people refer to their pets as their children’s siblings, though.

Also, something that I see around here is giving anti-virtue names, like Fear, Rage, Rebel, etc. I really don’t understand that. Hopefully, this is a micro-trend that will soon pass.

Jaime Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 5:13 pm

I wish I could talk my husband into Rufus for our little boy (due 3/11). It was my paternal grandfather’s name and I love that it’s being appreciated anew. Alas, he is strongly opposed.

trich323 Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 7:11 pm

Maybe it’s just because I’m a child of the 70s, but Roscoe just makes me think of the doofus cop on Dukes of Hazzard. Ew.

I love the exotic flower names, but my favorite, Amaryllis, didn’t make the list.

I’ve seen some really cool month names lately. I’ve heard of an October and a November.

QuirkFlower Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 8:07 pm

Love all the time names! Hope Poppy doesn’t get too popular, though.

Sachiko Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 8:37 pm

I love Rosamund; it combines my husband’s name with my dad’s name and is a lovely choice, but every time I say it I hear Orson Welles whispering “Rosebud”. Alas.

And thank heavens on Twilight names being over.

Elle Says:

November 15th, 2010 at 10:13 pm

I love so many of these trends.

I love the “us” names for boys. I didn’t see Julius on the list…that one is my favorite.

I love the two for one names too! When we chose our son’s name we wanted to make sure that it had a nice nickname option.

Charlotte Vera Says:

November 16th, 2010 at 2:34 am

Oh dear, I’m a fan of ends-in-us names for boys — I like them almost as much as the ends in “ic” names that I adore.

I very much wanted to name our daughter Rosamund, but Mark insisted on Roseanna after his mother. Oh well, even though I’m the the name addict in the marriage, he somehow ends up being the deciding factor when it comes to names. He’s selected the girls’ name for the baby we’re expecting next (and yes, it’s mentioned in this blog post), so I’m hoping he’ll give into one of my boys’ names (neither of which are mentioned, although I think they fit the trends).

Lyndsay Says:

November 16th, 2010 at 2:37 am

What an insightful list!

Twofer names are really the best, I sure wish I had one. And I’m definitely one who finds nicknames first.

Kinda bummed about your prediction of Ha names, I really love Hattie. I probably would never actually be able to commit to Harriet, though.

Our top boy name starts with R, but was remarkably left off the list.

I hope you’re right about the Twilight names. If not just because I adore Rosalie and Belle and I think it’d be great if Bella wasn’t popular so I could maybe use it some day.

Also, it’d be great if Azalea and Marigold started getting some use. I love them, but they’re just too out there for me at this point.

Vanessa Says:

November 16th, 2010 at 9:45 am

I think this reinforces my philosophy about this sight and the regular guests. I think a major factor in why we are drawn to a name in the first place is that it is not common. The further down the list of popularity, the more our discerning group likes it. Soooo, if some of our favorites starts jumping up the ranking, we will have find new names to adore. At least, this is how I feel. I would be so disappointed to have a Clementine or Sylvia and then find in 4 or 5 years down the road a group of newborn Sylvias or Clementines.

I’m so happy to see that unisex names are increasingly used for boys! Let’s take back all those great names that became taboo as soon as they were given to a girl! It’s good to share after all! 🙂

My son’s middle name is Sidney 🙂 but he’s a III so I don’t know if it counts.

What’s wrong with Rhoda? I think it’s ready to come back; I love it. My DH’s grandma is Rhoda. Ernest, Rose, and sometimes Abraham (definitely w/ nickname Bram) are all on my list, though Rose or Ernest would be a middle name.

Emily Says:

November 16th, 2010 at 10:17 pm

I was hoping to get peoples opinion on the name Ranger. I think it would fit right in on this list. We are considering it for our son. It was actually a name before an occupation. In old French (Rainger) it means “Keeper of the forest.” Hence the occupation. With all the other occupation/outdoorsy names out there (Hunter, Mason, Fisher, Porter, Everst, Rider) is it the next big thing, or a big mistake?

Brynn Says:

November 16th, 2010 at 11:49 pm

BIGGEST BIG PICTURE TREND: Two-for-one names
Love this trend! Louise and Arthur, and Abraham, Bee, and Bram are all growing on me.
LIGHTEST NEW BEGINNING
Loving these: Hayden, Hadley, Hart, Harley, Hartley, Harlow.
HEAVIEST NEW ENDING
I do love Atticus. And Caius. And Serius.
TIMELIEST TREND
I like Winter. And November is definitely the next big month name. Nova for a nickname is so cute.
NEWEST GENDER-BENDING TREND
Loving: Paxton, Peyton, Sawyer. The fact that parents are no longer backing off from using a name for boys once it becomes popular for girls makes me sooooo happy.
FRESHEST FLOWER NAME
Azalea. Love it.
I still love Lily, Rose and Daisy though. Poppy, Lilac, Acacia are definitely lovely.
CONSONANT OF THE FUTURE
Rufus will take time. Rory, Rhys, Rowan, Roscoe, and Ruby are so of my favourite R names right now.
IT VOWEL
Definitely feeling the O. Oliver and Olivia, Oscar, Owen. Olive, Olympia, and Ophelia.
SPACIEST TREND
LOVE Seraphina and Gabriel. Stella and Luna

Vanessa Says:

November 17th, 2010 at 10:36 am

I think November will be a big hit in 2011 because it will be 11-11, which some people consider lucky. “Make a wish it’s 11:11!” Also, for conception of an 11/11/11 baby, Valentine’s Day falls right in the middle.

Oztok5 Says:

As the mother of a little Arthur born this year, I’m going to cross my fingers that it doesn’t catch on. 🙂 Excellent post.

Jamie Says:

Interesting! I didn’t know that we were so trendy. We have two kids under age two. One is Priscilla, called Rilla, and one is Abraham, called Abe.

JNE Says:

November 21st, 2010 at 9:20 pm

Gotta’ say, if these truly are where we’re going name-trend-wise – then bring it on! I like almost all of it… and *love* some of it, too! Azalea, Harvey, Walter, Warren, Oliver (of course!), H-names, -us names and especially Two-fer names (can’t get enough of the buttoned up name with the cute nns!)… Hope some of these trends eek their way into my neighborhood soon!

Shannon Says:

November 23rd, 2010 at 8:43 pm

My little one is Stella Star. Talk about being in with the trends.

katie Says:

November 25th, 2010 at 12:13 am

For a name site I’m surprised at your mistake – the author of the Twilight series – which I will also be glad to see fade away (the series, not the author!) – is not spelled “Stephanie” but “Stephenie” … just wanted to point that out …

Rachel Says:

November 25th, 2010 at 1:27 am

When I was little, I LOVED Azalea! I still think it’s really pretty but there’s too many other names that I love more to use it. My daughter’s name is Ruby and I love Rain. Go R names!

CaliMommy Says:

December 2nd, 2010 at 11:45 pm

Maybe I’m missing something, but as someone who has read the whole Twilight series, who in the world is Felix? A member of the Volturi? I don’t see Edward or Emmett fading, the former is classic and the latter is catching fire, not dwindling. I notice they didn’t say Rosalie or Alice, I see both of those getting more popular (Alice is my mn and my Grandmother’s name).
I love two-for-one names!

Holz Says:

December 3rd, 2010 at 1:56 pm

I’d like to echo what Gaby says. Naming your child “Fanny” is extremely rude. How about Fagina instead.

Brandi Says:

December 3rd, 2010 at 2:46 pm

I am glad we changed our mind on Ophelia and it was primary based on the fact I have seen that name all over this website and it really seems like it’s trending upward.. We love the name but we are so stubborn on having a name that is NOT common. We love Seraphina too (it’s actually hubby’s grandmother’s name) but it’s going to be common as well. I think we finally got a name that isn’t common in the US!

Keren Says:

December 5th, 2010 at 8:25 am

I’ve just had a Rory. Other contenders for his name were Rowan, Raphael and Reuben. First and last time in my life I will ever be on trend!

I honestly thought maybe The Hunger Games would be the new Twilight at first, but, after some more thought, I can definitely see people going Harry Potter since The Deathly Hallows has hit the big screen, but the names are still familiar and have just been brought anew, not as hard of a hit as a new book series that is just seeing the spotlight.

hicksie Says:

December 16th, 2010 at 12:13 pm

I am really sad that the name I chose for my son 5 years ago (and now would FINALLY get to use!) is forecasted on this list as popular. 🙁 How sure are we about this?

Sammi Says:

January 8th, 2011 at 1:06 pm

I cant belive my bestest ever boy name is on there! Go Dexter! I absoloutly LOVE this name but many have dissagreed with me so much that ive had to abandon it. Gutted 🙁 Im not too keen on quite a few of these names, but its nice to see a different lot of names coming into trend.

SUPER bummed my little rhododendron is on this list.

Back in’08, we thought Azalea was really unique. Imagine my surprise today when my coworker came up and told me that from last year it ranked #1100 and this year it is #396.

SAY IT AIN’T SOOOOOO!

I always loved the name Sheldon, decided on that name for my future son when I was but a child myself. I named him Sheldon Parker. It sounded nice to my ear, it suits him. He’s no nerdy old man in a boys body type either. Smart, athletic, loyal, trustworthy are just a few of his positives. So Bella, if you like it, use it.

Yes – “Fanny” is sweet in the U.S. and other places, but off-limits if you plan to live or vacation in Ireland/Scotland/England. The American equivalents start with “p” and “c” and are not what you want to be named after! Names I love for girls are Hazel and Fiona, for boys, Declan, Emmett, Finn and Rory.

Ally Says:

March 9th, 2011 at 4:05 am

I love the name November for a girl! Someone mentioned earlier that it’s also a great two-fer name, but I think it could actually be a great THREE-fer name as well! Nova and Ember both work beautifully as nicknames for this name in my opinion!

I loved ‘us’ names for my boy but all mine: Titus, Octavius, and Augustus where veto’d. I also loved Ulyssius (but since I made it up that was first to go. Finally caved and named son Jonas Thomas (hubby’s favorite). Now I can give my hubby the “haha look” I reserve just for the comments we get from practically every child/teen who says ‘oh, jonas like the Jonas Brothers!’. Plus son is forever being called Jonah by his grandpa who just doesn’t seem to hear that ‘s’ sound.

May 14th, 2011 at 9:30 am

Wow, just found this while looking for a friend… I tried quite hard to find names that weren’t super popular. My third baby, born in Dec 2010, is called Marigold. People have been really quite taken aback by it so I’ll be a bit sad if it becomes popular. My middle child is Clementine and I got Marigold’s name from Clementine (and Winston’s) baby daughter who sadly died in infancy in the 1920s. In England it’s not going to get that popular (I hope) as Marigolds are also the name of yellow rubber gloves you wash dishes and clean drains with 😉

catherine Says:

It’s so hard choosing names!! After looking through numerous baby books, credits on t.v etc- we went through mine and my hubbys family trees to find a name for our little boy. The only name we could agree on was Wilson James, which was my hubbys grandads middle name! Our son is now nearly 5 and we’ve only ever come across about 4 seperate people who know of Wilsons, i’ve never met one personally tho! Our baby girl is due in September and I think we’re calling her Charlotte Maisy, which can be shortened to Charlie, Lotty and Mai which are all fairly unused and very pretty 🙂

Even though my husband and I don’t know if we’re having a boy or a girl yet, I’m kind of hoping that we get a baby girl just so I could use some of the flower names. I especially love Camellia and Iris (even though it’s not on the list). If it’s a boy, I think and “R” name would be nice (and he would have the same first initial as his daddy).

Antonio Fernandez Carriedo Says:

Out of all of them my fave is Raydine and I have never heard of it before.

I’m still surprised to this day when I meet an Azalea. Except for Lea, I can’t see it lending itself to a nn.

Recently at one of my hubbys coworkers kids parties there was a girl answering to the name Mary. I assumed that was her name. Once her mother came to get her, that was when I found out her name was actually Amaryllis. According to her mom, who was as intrigued with our choice of Matilda, as I was with hers, and she said that they sometime also call Amaryllis, Lily.
