Predicting the most popular baby names of 2018
Whether new parents want their baby's name to stand out from the crowd or fit in nicely among the other tots, it can be hard to predict if your plan will actually come to fruition. It's hard to see the zeitgeist while you're a part of it.
So which baby names will be super popular in 2018 and which will be highly unique? I analyzed the Social Security Administration's data on changes in baby name popularity between 2015 and 2016 to spot names that are rising in popularity and creeping toward the top of the charts (2017 rankings haven't yet been released). Then I consulted with trend expert Daniel Levine of the Avant-Guide Institute to come up with this list of names that may be some of the most popular of 2018.
