December is the month in which the largest number of people get pregnant, which means that in January, a lot of newly expectant parents are starting to think about baby names in 2019.

What new baby names will start appearing on birth certificates and in nurseries this year? Which recent favorites will really take off in 2019?

To find out, we measured the names that are attracting the most attention on Nameberry right now versus at this time a year ago. The results give us 100 baby names, both familiar and unique, that we predict we'll be hearing a lot more of in 2019.

Expecting parents, consider this your starter list of names. They represent a range of styles that all strike the perfect note for the times. But if you want a name that no one else is thinking of, don't choose one of these.
