Although the new name data for 2015 won’t be announced till May, I’ve seen a lot of name blogs and websites making predictions for what the new top names are going to be.  We’re certainly not the first writers to imagine names from the future!

 – H. G. (Herbert GeorgeWells, 1895

George
Alexander
Moses
Bruce
Adam
Theophilus
