Still in search of the perfect baby name? Nameberry, a popular baby naming website, can help. While the final list of the most popular baby names won’t be released until next year, the site released its most popular baby names for boys and girls in 2020 so far.

Luna has been the top spot for baby girl names on Nameberry’s charts since Chrissy Teigen and John Legend decided on it for their daughter’s name. The top 10 list also had three newcomers, Ava, Eloise and Eleanor, which replaced Ada, Cora and Amelia. Meanwhile, for boys, Asher has become contender for the most-searched for name and is currently in the number two spot. Arlo, Leo and Levi are all new to the top 10 list for boys. Archie and Jack, on the other hand, are no longer on the list. Below, the top 10 baby names for boys and girls (so far).
