The Most Popular Baby Names

Nameberry has released the list of the most popular baby names so far this year. Find out what baby names parents are loving in 2020.

Nameberry has released the latest baby name lists for 2020 and this year has a few shocks so far. For one, Emma and Liam — the most popular baby names for the last two years — aren’t currently anywhere near the top spots.

So, which baby names have been the most popular so far this year? Parents here seem to prefer Milo and Luna most.

The problem, of course, is that knowing about the popularity of a certain baby name can make parents want to avoid it altogether. If it’s too popular, they think, their child could be in a class where several students share the same name (shoutout to the Jessicas, Jennifers and Michaels who know the feeling).

Experts say that concern is less of an issue these days, since parents are choosing a greater diversity of names overall – for example, the percentage of girls given a “top 10” name dropped from around 25 percent in 1945 to 8 percent in 2007, Live Science reports.

Still, many parents are cautious about choosing a so-called “popular” name. If that’s the case for you, consider these top-ranking names.
