Nameberry Predicts the Most Popular Baby Names of the Future
When the year 2028 rolls around, we’ll likely see a lot of babies with the names Charlotte and Liam. At least that’s what Nameberry predicts.
The site analyzed Social Security data to calculate baby name projections for the next 10 years. And, according to Namesberry, the most popular baby names in 2028 will include some familiar choices as well as unexpected newcomers.
The database expects Charlotte, which first rose to the US Top 10 list in 2014, to make its way to the coveted No. 1 spot for girls’ names. As for boys, Liam is predicted to hold on to its top spot. And when it comes to gender neutral names, Avery is anticipated to be the most popular name.
Here are the most popular girls’, boys’ and gender neutral names. Names new to the Top 10 in 2028 are marked with an asterisk.
