People choose to name their babies after some unusual things.

From the place they first met or where the child was conceived, to their favourite perfume or car, many parents get creative when naming their little bundle of joy.

Celebrities are renowned for giving their offspring unusual names. Gwynneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have a child called Apple whereas Cheryl Cole’s son is called Bear.

But now it appears a Bristol place could become a popular baby name, with ‘Easton’ on the list.

Website Nameberry has revealed its predictions for what could be the 20 most popular baby names next year.

 

In order to create the top 20, the team at Nameberry work out which names in their database have seen the biggest increase in interest over the last year, reports the Mirror Online.

It seems parents are getting back in to old fashioned names like Pearl, which was a top 100 name from 1880 through the mid-1920s, when it started a long decline.

Other names to make the cut take inspiration from pop culture events or celebrities, like Billie (Billie Eilish).

A spokesperson for Nameberry said: “Our top baby names are a radical departure from the official national list, which suffers from a considerable time lag.

“We won’t know which names were  really  used the most often for babies in 2020 until May of 2021.

“The names here offer baby namers a heads up on trends and specific names destined to get more popular in 2020 and beyond.”
