Here’s Why the Laurens and Amandas You Know Are Getting Pregnant
Usually when we write about names, it’s all about baby. We’re switching things up to talk about your name, because it may just play a role in your likelihood of getting pregnant in 2017.
The folks at Elite Daily crunched a few numbers to come to this conclusion. Let’s start with a fact. The average age of a first-time mom reached an all-time high in the US at approximately 26.3 years old in 2014. This is a huge climb from 24.9 years old in 2000.
This average age has only been going up from there. Since that 2014 report, we can assume that now, in 2017, the average age of a first-time mom is somewhere between 26 and 27.
What are those twenty-somethings called? Let’s take a look at the most popular names for babies born in 1990, who, for the most part, would now be 26 going on 27.
In 1990, these names were all the rage. And now in 2017, these are the names that are most likely to add “mom” to their title. Expect more Stephanies and Amandas inviting your to their baby showers this year.
Make sense? In the pool of 26-going-on-27-year-olds, there are more Jessicas and Ashleys and Sarahs. And in the pool of women getting pregnant this year, there are more 26- and 27-year-olds expecting.
