The Most Notable Names of 2013

The most notable names of 2013—a few of which were awaited with great anticipation– are borne by prominent personages in the realms of religion, royalty, politics, the tech world, and of course, entertainment. Here are our picks for the twelve names most emblematic of 2013—along with a few others that slipstreamed in their wake.


The first name of Downton Abbey’s Countess of Grantham has taken the lead over those of her daughters, though Edith, Sibyl and –surprisingly—Mary are also coming back into style. Another winner in this category is Charlotte, the shy girl most likely to succeed—a huge Nameberry fave. And let’s not forget Alice, in tribute to Nobel Prize-winning author Alice Munro.
