    Another vote for the boy names list being pretty much the same. As for the girls, I think a lot more 'unusual' older names will come back...even a few of the clunkier ones. I feel like nature/hippy names will still rank high. As for kre8tive names, I hope they'll fade away, but something tells me that at least a few of them will stick around.

    Oh, I'm happy we have a thread like this.

    What I think is:
    1. Various classic names will be sticking around, but some may lose a few positions, and some will be fading.
    2. Look at the names popular around 1910 -1920. Many of these are already resurrecting, and I think we are due for more.
    3. Latin names.
    4. More word names.
    5. Less modern names.

    Some names in particular:
    I think Charlotte, Amelia, Aubrey, Harper will hit the top ten - maybe even earlier than 2020.
    I can imagine Sophia and Olivia still sticking around.
    Names destined to turn around: Clara, Beatrice, Frances, Pearl, Mabel, Irene, Sylvia, Madeline, Sadie, Flora, Miriam, Susan/Susannah, Celia, Carmen...
    Some of these may even be rising right now. No patience to check every one.

    I think misspelled and crazy spellings will not be around anymore by the time I have kids. I'm also thinking that people will be naming their kids more "exotically" due to the multiculturalism in our society and more acceptance of people from other countries. Also, traditional names from the 1800-1900s will be back.

    Well I'm 22 so I may have kids when I'm 27 or so. I really don't think things will go drastic.

    I agree that the boy's list may just rearrange the top 10, mostly to slightly altered spellings or nicknames like Masen/Masin, Jake, or Xavier. I think slightly unusual, trendier names like Ryder or Maddox will go up too. But the girl's list will move around a lot; I think Olivia will go up higher, maybe 2nd, and Eve/Eva will go up, same as Vivienne, Ariana, Elsie, and Zoe.

    I do think people will get more used to slightly unusual names, like Nova, Blue , or Cadence, and maybe even vintage Beatrice, Dottie, Susannah, Ione, or names with Southern charm like Annabelle, Carolina, Tallulah, Lilah.

    I think that there will be a lot more uncommon and word names, but also a lot more traditional names and old-fashioned names. I can see names in the bottom of the Top 100 becoming Top 10. So names such as Aria, Lydia, Trinity, Easton, Bryson and Ryder for the US; Milla, Josephine, Olive, David, Dominic and Jasper for Australia; Maryam, Francesca, Aisha, Frederick, Elijah and Robert for England and Wales.

    I think that they will definitely affect my favourite names, though if I still love the names I love now, I'm sure I will still be willing to use them if the love has lasted for 8+ years.
