BabyCenter® Reveals Top Baby Names Of 2017

 

https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/611929/TopBBNames2017.jpg?w=1600SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — BabyCenter®, the #1 pregnancy and parenting web and mobile destination, today released its much-anticipated Top 100 Names of 2017. Sphia reigns as the top girls’ name for the eighth year running, and Jackson leads the boys for the fifth year in a row.

 

“Sophia is shaping up to be the girls’ name of the decade. It has a lot going for it: It’s feminine, lyrical, popular in many languages, and available in multiple spellings,” says Linda Murray, BabyCenter Global Editor in Chief. “Jackson is having a great run on the boys’ list. It’s strong, masculine, and modern.”

 

Reflecting the varied interests and values of Millennial and Gen Z moms and dads, famous pop-culture figures from rap stars to Disney heroines emerged as name influencers, along with basketball champs and, interestingly, colors. The earth and its weather inspired names, too. “Young parents have deep respect and concern for the environment. Storms, climate change, and the sheer beauty found in nature are driving a whole new category of popular baby names,” says Murray. (See below for more detail on the top trends of 2017.)
