The Baby Name Expert Shares Trends For 2024

Fortunately, for modern parents, there seems to be a consultant for all of life’s challenging moments when it comes to parenting. We have a lactation consultant, a sleep consultant, a potty training consultant, and we even have a baby name consultant before the baby arrives, which is pretty helpful if you ask me. There is a family at my son’s elementary school who named their son Sky Miles, and I think they might be a good candidate for a baby naming consultant. But I’m sure their son will have a leg-up with whoever applies for a job at Delta Airlines when they’re older.

If you’re having trouble choosing gender-neutral baby girl names right now, TikTok’s resident baby naming consultant returns, leaving opinions on gender-neutral girl names to avoid of parents—and great names—in 2024. Obviously, you do, but if you’re looking for a little help in that department, Coleen at @namingbebe has you covered.

In other words, Collen believes that short and stylish gender-neutral names are the way to go, as they are timeless and less trendy.

In a TikTok video, he gives a glimpse of a consultation for a family struggling to come up with a name for their child. He began by naming the top contenders, and also names to stay away from.

Top contenders for gender-neutral girl names include Rowan, Leigh, Cy, Bea, Miller, Eve, Bennett, Emerson, Poppy, Vaughn, Max, and Sloane.

Names from the “top 100″ list that parents shouldn’t use if they’re looking for something unique and timeless, according to Coleen, are Olive, Noa, Ryan, and Goldie. For this particular family, Coleen says, “They wanted something more unique and not in the top 100, and they couldn’t use Noah, Ryan, or Charlie. They like Goldie, but it’s a bit trendy around them now,” she said in the clip. “They want something with a cool aesthetic, but not too girly. They tend to have gender-neutral names, and they want it to feel more timeless than trendy,” she continued.

Her top contender for a gender-neutral girl’s name has Celtic origins. “First we have Callan, and I think it’s very similar to Rowan on their list, but less mainstream. It’s a Celtic-inspired boy’s name with a very soft sound, and I think it works really well. to a woman,” he said. The next name is “Ellis,” which she says she likes, and the fact that they can use one-syllable nicknames like Elle is very much in line with the “one-syllable, super feminine names on their list.”

She mentioned that this particular family saw symbolism around their baby’s due date and how desirable the child was, so she thought a name like Sunny would be appropriate because of its lightness and also a “lovely gender-neutral name.”

Other names he mentioned as top contenders in this consultation include Blake, Lane, Andie, Gray, Logan, Esti, Remi, Campbell, Kit, Wesley, and Luca.

In the end, the family chose a name from their list and her list, and ended up with baby Cy (Sunny). “Cy means ‘sun,’ so they call the baby Sunny,” she concluded.

That’s a pretty perfect compromise, combining the emotional, personal factor of choosing a baby name, along with the timeless and unique factors. I wish Coleen was by my side when I chose our son’s name in 2018. “Jackson,” who will be called “Jack” seemed to be the top name for his age group, but we didn’t know it at the time. Now there are three Jacks in his Kindergarten class. Maybe we should name him Sky Miles or something similar to make him stand out.
