Everly? Owen? Leif? Leon? Those names may have been considered for this cutie pie.Shutterstock

By now we’ve all heard about which baby names were most popular last year, but what about the names that are attracting the most attention now and into the future?

Here is our behind-the-scenes look at our 100 hottest baby names of 2015, the secret popularity list of the names gaining the most in views on Nameberry. Our methodology: We looked at the number of times every name in our database was viewed for the first half of this year vs. the same period last year and, controlling for overall traffic increases, which names jumped the highest.

The hottest names of 2015 and beyond are a mix of fresh favorites and vintage choices enjoying new attention. Some of the names here are already-stylish: Everly and Owen, Ash and Zed.

But there are a lot of surprising choices among the Hot 100. And even if you name your baby the still-unusual Tove or Meilani, Leif or Leon today, don’t be surprised to find it a lot more popular tomorrow. We warned you!
