One big trend is astrology names by date of birth.
"Parents are interested in giving their children names that connect to their star sign, as well as names related to planets or ruling elements — fire, earth, air and water," Pamela Redmond of the baby name site Nameberry tells TODAY.com
Redmond says that astrology themes translate well into baby names.
"Planetary names such as Jupiter, Mars and Saturn are rising, along with names with related meanings, such as Cyrus (sun), Luna (moon) and Kai (sea)," she says.
