Choosing your baby’s name

September 24, 2019  /   Birth Center  /   2-minute read

Choosing your baby’s name can be challenging. Do you go with a family name for the first name? For the middle name? Do you name your baby after your favorite movie or literary character? Do you want a popular name or an old-school one?

What if you and your partner just can’t agree on a name? How do you decide? Maybe your partner’s top choice is the name of your childhood nemesis. Sometimes it’s helpful to decide at birth. Your baby might not just look like the name you selected.

Then, the ultimate question: Do you share your list with friends and family? What if they hate every name on the list? (See: Jessica Simpson may have revealed her baby’s name—and everyone’s hating on it) What if your pregnant cousin is due before you?

There’s a lot to consider. To jumpstart your name-selection process, here are the top 10 most popular boy and girl names in 2019 (so far).
