Not everybody is into using a popular baby name for their little ones these days, and it’s not because the current “trends” don’t have pretty or exciting names, but because few baby names are famous nowadays, this spring or this summer but they might be obsolete next day or next year. So the current popularity of a particular name shouldn’t be a decisive factor when choosing your new born’s name, but it’s OK to take the current trends as a guideline to show you where names are going.
Various online lists are made each year, where thousands of people vote for the most popular baby names, and different ranks are given to each, judging by their popularity. We choose to share a few popular baby names for girls by placing them in different categories, as shown below. The first category containing a few popular baby names is the Christian names category.
Many parents name their babies after characters that can be found in the Bible, as these names have a special resonation. If you’re in this category, make sure you choose a name after a character that did something beautiful or did something worth mentioning, not someone portrayed in a negative light in the Bible. Few of the most popular baby names that are chosen directly from the Bible include Joshua (a character from the Bible whose name means ‘God is salvation’; it is a message, and Christian people tend to like these types of words), or Abigail, a popular Christian baby name that means ‘Joy of the Father.’
The next category in which there are a few popular baby names is the origin category. A lot of future parents will want to select exotic names based on their origins, and a name like Aaliyah is perfect for the opportunity. Aaliyah is an Arabic name with an interesting meaning: ‘Sublime.’ The name sounds unique and beautiful, and it has become an even more popular baby girl name after the R&B singer with the same name became famous. Another popular baby name is Ailani because of its exotic origins (Hawaiian roots). The meaning of the name is ‘High chief.’
Our second category of famous baby names is based on the originality of the name. For this type of group, only a specific personal pattern applies to parents. A name’s uniqueness can be chosen by parents who live a non-conformist lifestyle and have a dominant and non-judgmental personality. They will be able to come up with an original, genuinely unique name that may not mean anything, but it might only sound beautiful. This is an increasingly popular type of baby names.
No worries which of these categories you find yourself into, make sure you don’t select a famous baby name for your little one simply because of some list where people vote and rank the names. Think about all aspects that a name affects and decide what’s best for your little boy or girl.
