Parents looking for baby names can take inspiration from various sources when selecting an ideal name. Coastal grandmother fashion and mushroom-inspired interior design trends recently popular on TikTok may suggest names ending in ‘a’ that use Butler’s predicted long ‘e’ sound as examples.

Due to shows such as Bridgerton and Stranger Things, drippy maximalist names have seen a resurgence in 2023. These extravagant names give your child the ability to embody confident roles as main characters.

Country-Cute Baby Names

Country life is back, from farmhouse-style decor to old barns and slow living, so it comes as no surprise that rustic baby names are trending upward. Rustic names conjure images of fresh produce, farm animals and nature – providing an alternative to some of the more trendy baby names trending today.

These names may draw their inspiration from nature, farm-related words or phrases, popular books, languages or cultures; or be an homage to family heritage and traditions – making each name both classic and unique!

Country names for girls often convey something sweet and kind – reflecting country living. Winnie evokes both Pooh and Nelson Mandela when considered for use as a name for any youngster; other popular choices for country girl names include Miley (which pays homage to Miley Cyrus from ’90s icon Miley Cyrus), Maybell Pearl or Maisie which all share close ties to the countryside.

Boys looking for country names often opt for names like Jack and Elijah that combine religious significance with adventure. Jackson may also be suitable, as its sound harkens back to John – while Hendrix pays homage to an iconic musician while offering your son the confidence he needs for success in life.

Sweet Baby Names

If you want a name to do justice to her sweetness, think of one with cute and feminine characteristics – something that can remind you every time you see her; its definition will do the rest:

Cora is becoming an increasingly popular virtue name because its meaning, merciful, describes exactly the qualities your daughter will display when meeting you. Or how about Dahlia which evokes both Nestle’s chocolate bar as well as an otherworldly flower which Ethan Hawke used as his character’s nickname in The Last of the Mohicans.

Nameberry notes that beachy and nature-inspired names are currently trendy – Ivy or Violet would make wonderful choices for your girl, while Capri or Bali could also work if you plan on traveling frequently with her.

One sweet baby name option you could select might include shortening classic names, like Joanna (which saw its popularity soar after Kool and the Gang’s song was released in 1984). You might also try opting for botanical names like Blossom or Brielle; or following surname-as-first-name trends like Carmen, Willow or Daphne; Nameberry predicts long e’ sound names might become increasingly popular too. Nameberry anticipates these trends will become even more prominent by 2023 and could include feminine nonsense names like Sparkle or Zest!

Old-Fashioned Baby Names

Parents looking for gentle parenting methods and cultivating children with strong emotional intelligence are also opting for names that encapsulate this approach, including names with soothing sounds like C, F or L; along with those inspired by mythology or history.

Eleanor remains one of the most beloved creative baby names today, being an elegant old-fashioned selection for girls that remains popular and has held onto its top 10 position for most of the 20th century. Eleanor also makes an excellent pick for unisex babies as it provides access to its nickname Ellie.

Other old-fashioned baby names are making a comeback as well, such as Ephraim (a Hebrew name most popular around 1900) or Elijah from Scripture – both classics with timeless appeal for boys. Modern names with luxurious connotations like Apollo, Aurelia, Eos or Goldie can also make for stylish options for boy or girls.

Girls too are following suit in 2023 with names inspired by gold, brightness, and lavishness making a comeback into the top 100 list of names – such as Hendrix, Khaleesi from Game of Thrones (inspired by Hendrix!) and Lana to name just some of those making waves this year.

Nature-Inspired Baby Names

When selecting a name for your newborn, nature can serve as an invaluable source of inspiration. From lush grasses and trees, to birds flying overhead – nature-inspired names allow you to give your infant an appreciation of all it offers!

These nature-inspired baby names stand as an alternative to the common trend of opting for soft vowel names (Ivy, Lily, Poppy and Daisy) for girls. Additionally, these nature-themed baby names reflect our belief that children should be exposed to beauty.

Some of the most beloved nature-inspired names include tree names like Spruce, which evoke memories of Christmastime evergreen scent. Others take inspiration from colors found in nature like bright blue skies or ocean waters.

Nature-inspired names can also be crafted creatively by making reference to mythology or history. Names like Seahawk, Sage, and Olive all allude to mythological creatures or individuals while others take their cue from elements or forces such as ocean strength or the fiery forces of Zeus and Athena.

Parents today are taking an unusually innovative approach to nature-inspired naming: honoring female deities by giving their boys names that were previously given exclusively to girls, in line with society’s ongoing shift away from gender stereotyping.
