If you're looking for ideas for a trendy girls name, or just want to know which names are predicted to be popular in 2021, we've listed the girl names you need to know this year. 

There are also a couple of trends, identified by Nameberry, which are interesting to note if you want your baby to have an up-to-date and fashionable name.

This year 'long A' is on every parent’s lips when talking about girl names. It features prominently in many traditional favorites, including Maeve and Hazel, and is emulated by Es in such rising names as Esme and Vega. 

A celebrity-inspired trend for girls is day names, as influenced by Rupert Grint’s daughter Wednesday. Wednesday, of course, will be the hottest among them, but Sunday and Tuesday will see a rise as well.
