15 Most Popular Baby Names in 2021 (and 5 Becoming Extinct)

2020 has been a year like no other but if there’s one thing we can always rely on, it’s babies being born.

Picking the perfect name is one of the first, most important decisions parents must make. And while there are many factors that contribute to the decision, often times the popularity vote wins. All you need to do is look at lists from years past and you’ll see a lot of familiar names.

Whether it’s classic or traditional, easy to pronounce and spell, or unique and trendy, these are what Nameberry predicts will be the top baby names of 2021. Some for boys, others for girls (never forget: gender is a social construct). But don’t worry, there are gender-neutral options also available and there are those that no one wants to use anymore. (Yes, those ones.)
