The most popular names around the world

January 15, 2018

Young adults dreaming about starting their own families like to speculate about names for their future babies.

Name trends change every year and are strongly influenced by pop culture, globalization and international marriages.

Names are copied from famous singers, actors, top athletes and fantasy characters. Modern parents also want their children’s names to be international and pronounceable in many different languages.

On the other hand, many traditional – even old-fashioned – baby names are on the rise again. In addition to celebrities, history and different cultures, inspiration is drawn from nature, religion and mythology. In any case, parents are looking for names that are as unique, creative and meaningful as possible.
