2016's most popular baby names

Next year's most popular baby names are not what you'd expect.
  • Sometimes you can guess someone's age by their name. For example, a Cayden isn't the kind of guy you'd hang out with in a nursing home, and Bertha's not really a gal you'd meet when you're out dancing.

  • So, as you're sitting through the graduation of the class of 2034, trying not to fall asleep, here are the names Baby Centre expects you'll hear over and over:

  • 10 most popular girl names for 2016

  • Emi

  • Nora

  • Astrid

  • Eden

  • Marni

  • Luna

  • Cleo

  • Queenie

  • Cicely

  • Beryl

  • 10 most popular boy names for 2016

  • Hector

  • Atticus

  • Aspen

  • Otto

  • Devon

  • Nelson

  • Kit

  • Alberto

  • Cairo

  • Colton

  • So if you don't want to subject your child to becoming defined by their last initial (pretty sure Sarah F. will never be thought of as just "Sarah" to her classmates), avoid these names like their social life depends on it.
