Yes, Millennial Mom Names Can Work for Alpha Era Girls!
Millennials, those born in the eighties through mid-nineties, are the generation having babies in 2019. These children are a part of the emerging Generation Alpha, defined as anyone born from 2010-2025. Gen Alphas come into the world with iPads in hand and social media handles pre-claimed—a vastly different experience from their parents’.
Baby name trends have also changed through the generations. Gen X stalwarts like Jennifer and Amy, which remained popular for Millennials, are rare choices for a Gen Alpha baby. Names like Sophia and Olivia were up-and-comers during the Millennial generation. They rapidly increased in use during Gen Z and are now enjoying their status as some of the defining names of Gen Alpha.
We’ve taken the top 100 Millennial girl names and reinvented them as Gen Alpha names. These names are fresher than their Millennial counterparts, and act as markers of the generation.
