The most popular baby names of 2019 so far (and we're surprised!)

Section: Baby names

Despite many of us having our heart set on our future baby's name since we were small - when it comes down to it, choosing a moniker is no easy task. 

Will they be able to spell it with ease? Will it suit their personality? Will there be 18 others(!) with the same name in their reception class? The questions are enough to leave us anxiety-ridden whilst panic-eating a large bowl of Cheerios.  

Looking ahead to 2019, the trend for choosing comfortably familiar names, with or without a twist, is definitely going to continue. Famous youngsters are also boosting names' popularity (Luna and Harper, anyone?) 

Check out the most popular baby names so far for 2019, according to Nameberry.
