These Will Be the Most Popular Baby Names in 2019

Andrew Roberts 30 Oct 2018

Each year we are treated to a slew of new baby names, some traditonal and some crafted by wayward parents who have watched too much television over the year.

Being able to craft the perfect baby name could be make or break for your child before they even learn to walk. If they have a strange name and you aren't insanely rich, you could set them up for a horrendous decade of teasing in grade school.

And it if it is just a plain name with no juice to it, you might set them up for a life of working in a cubicle and complaining about the empty coffee pot in the break room.

It's tricky.

How Do They Determine These Names???

There is no real consensus over what names will be the biggest of the year it seems. The Social Security Office does release the top 100 names using some deep scrapes and tracking over the years. Most combine that information with other naming trends, formulas, algorithms, and many other aspects to create these best of lists.

It is far deeper than just tossing darts at a wall full of names.
