Baby Name Trends: Inspiration for 2022 Baby Names

The past two years have been hard on many of us but the trends for 2022 are incorporating hope and style for our little ones. Here are some names you'll be seeing in the year to come. 


Blasts From the Past: 

Retro names are holding strong this year but we're headed back to the 50's this year with names like: 

  1. Betty
  2. Mae
  3. Constance
  4. Nellie
  5. Etta
  6. Frank
  7. Gus
  8. Ray
  9. Bobby
  10. Hank


Names From Nature:

Maybe it's because we've all been stuck inside for so long, but many parents are turning to nature for name inspiration this year. Prepare your little one for the great outdoors with names like:

  1. Capri
  2. Lotus
  3. Sequoia
  4. Zephyr
  5. Bali
  6. Forest
  7. Palmer
  8. Woods
  9. Ridge

Old English:

There's no denying the draw of TV shows like Bridgerton and Downton Abbey, so it's no surprise that the classic names from that time period are showing up on all the top lists this year. Names like:

  1. Daphne
  2. Portia
  3. Eloise
  4. Marina
  5. Genevieve
  6. Benedict
  7. Theo
  8. Simon
  9. Albion

Whether you have the next Rock n Roller or a classical Pianist, musical names are in this year so take your pic from: 

  1. Jazz
  2. Lyra
  3. Allegra
  4. Calypso
  5. Caprice
  6. Major
  7. Strummer
  8. Coda
  9. Brio

Non Binary Names

Historically, gender neutral names tend to lean towards male origin, however, this year we're seeing a shift. These names work for any gender: 

  1. Blair
  2. Harlow
  3. Scout
  4. Wren
  5. Shiloh
  6. Lou

No matter what name you choose, we hope 2022 sees a happy and healthy year for you and your family.
