Colleen on TikTok’s baby naming gives parents-to-be some thoughts on that Nameberry list, explaining what a sad boy name it is, and whether grandma Hazel really wants her grandchild named after him (spoiler alert: she doesn’t, no decrease this year).

Girl names for boys

People are becoming more open to gender-neutral names, but name forecasters don’t see this trend “taking off” for another decade or two, “when teenage years start to name themselves child.” He pointed out names like Harlow, Rowan, Blair, Finley, Parker, and even Noah. Even the traditional “boy names” are adopted as “girl names” now everything is becoming more fluid. He predicted that “Izzy” could have a moment, thanks to Love is Blind.

“Sad boy names” are on the rise

Think Eeyore vibes — the boy’s sweet and sensitive name is hot, she guessed. “Unfortunate male names are in…like August.”

Feminist “feminine” names.

A feminist name doesn’t have to be gender neutral — NameBerry points to the Barbie phenomenon for the rise in popularity of “girlie” names that still feel empowered. Think of Dorothea or Lavender, they say.

A person’s name, not a baby’s

The thing about babies is (sadly) they grow. Hence the saying, “Name the old man, not the baby.” They point to examples like “Mars” in the trend to name people who control the boardroom, not just the playroom.

But here’s the thing – parents everywhere take notice. You can love whatever name feels right for you, regardless of whether NameBerry deemed it “trending” this year…because as we all know, everything will change next year anyway.
