Dad Names: Updates for Alpha Babes
by Sophie Kihm
Babies born today are a part of Generation Alpha, which encompasses children born from 2010 to 2025. Their parents are Millennials, who were born from 1980-1996, the dawn of the digital age.
The trends in baby naming have shifted between these generations. Parents have become more adventurous with boy names, widening the pool of options for Gen Alpha babies. This change began during Generation Z but has really picked up steam since 2010. As more parents choose names like Bodhi and Ryker for their sons, there is less pressure to stick with the hyper-traditional dad names that dominated for so many years.
