A Prediction Of Popular Baby Names For 2022 Includes Retro Names Like Betty & Goldie

As trends and styles change through the years, so do popular baby names, but a ranking has predicted that the next generation of children could have their names that are throwbacks to eras gone by.

Nameberry's top 10 baby name trends for 2022 have been revealed and retro nostalgia names are expected to become popular as parents look to the past to figure out what they'll name their children and the ones to watch are pretty unique.

There are so many retro baby names that are predicted to see a surge next year, including Betty, Bobby, Constance, Etta, Frank, Goldie, Gene, Gus and Hank.

Parents are also expected to pick names like Louie, Mae, Ned, Nellie, Polly, Ralph, Ray, Sally, Susie, Victor and Vincent from the past and bring them to the present for a sort of post-pandemic escapism.

Nameberry has also predicted that playful names like Baby, escapist nature names like Prairie and Bridgerton names like Daphne will be popular in 2022. Guess it will be an interesting year for baby names!

Nameberry just dropped its list of 2021's most popular baby names, and the roundup will definitely help if you need a little inspiration.

Nameberry's list is based on the names that got the most page views in 2021, rather than using actual stats from babies that have been born. The site says that's a good way to see which names people are "secretly" researching for use in the future.
