The Hottest Names of 2015

Don't say we didn't warn you!

hottest baby names

by Pamela Redmond Satran

By now we’ve all heard about the most popular baby names of 2014, but what about the top names of 2015 and next year and beyond?

How can the intelligent baby namer find out which names will become even hotter — and maybe overheated — in the future?

Way back in 2011, we published a “secret popularity list” of girls’ names and boys’ names attracting the biggest jumps in views among our visitors.  The result: An amazingly accurate look at baby names that would become much more popular over the coming years.  Among the names we pegged as hot were Aria, Margot, and Vivian for girls; Cassius, Josiah, and Lennon for boys.

Now we’re back with a behind-the-scenes look at our hottest baby names of 2015, the names that are gaining much more attention than any others on Nameberry.   There are a few crossovers with the 2011 hot list: Lucille and Scout feature on both lists, with Rhett and Reuben, Booker and Quentin still hot for boys.

But for the most part, the hottest names of 2015 are all new, a mix of fresh favorites and vintage choices enjoying new attention.  These secretly popular names are a mix of the already-stylish such as Everly and Owen and surprising hotties from Betty to Tallulah, Ash to Zed.

Yet if you’re a parent in search of a name that no one else is likely to pick, be warned: The 100 hot baby names here are not likely to remain cool forever.  So if you name your baby the still-unusual Tove or Meilani, Leif or Leon today, don’t surprised to find it a lot more popular tomorrow.  We told you!

Note: The names here are ordered in terms of hotness, so Ainsley is the very hottest of the 50 girls’ names and Evan made the biggest leap for boys.

There aren’t many girls names on that list I like! However, I do love Emerson but I much prefer it on a boy. As for the boys’ list I love Cy and Kellen.

Cohen on the boy’s list, though? For shame.

I have to point out the flaw in the methodology, though…I like looking at the name information & what other people think of names, but not always because I like the name & would consider using it. In most cases it’s just interest on my part—I don’t have strong feelings one way or the other about the name—& in some cases it’s because the name has made me think “Who on earth would use *this* name? I never would in a million years!” I don’t know how many Berries & visitors do the same thing, but that sort of traffic could skew a name’s popularity.

Can you clarify — This is a list of names that made the biggest jump between what two periods? All of this year so far compared to the same time period last year? Or something else…?

[…] Noen navn stiger mye i popularitet fra ett år til neste. Sammen med Orla, Teagan, Jocelyn og Ainsley, for jenter, og Evan, Kingston, Cy, Harlan og Chester for gutter, kommer de skandinaviske/norrøne navnene Tove og Leif på listene over navn veldig mange søker på akkurat nå. Faktisk helt oppe på henholdsvis sjette og nittendeplass. […]

Maybe you guys could consider a button for each name asking why the name was viewed. That way we get the most accurate data for it. As the PP stated, sometimes we Berries simply want to view the names stats, meaning, or similar names. It.doesn’t necessarily mean we want to use it. But, this is only an idea. Great post btw. Keep up the good work, ladies!
