When it comes to choosing a name for your baby you first have to decide if you want to go with a traditional family name, a vintage baby name, or even something that is popular today.
If you’ve been trying to decide which name you like best, I am about to make your tasks easier (or harder) depending on how you look at it.
A top baby name site, Nameberry has just released the top baby names of 2019 so far and we’ve got all the adorable names for you below.
In 2018, the top baby girl name was Olivia and the top baby boy name was Atticus. Both have since been replaced.
The 2019 top baby girl name is Posie while the 2019 top baby boy name is Milo.
Posie, which can also be spelled Posy and Posey, represents the confluence of several baby name trends. It’s a vintage name, a nature name, and a nickname-name. Posie can be used on its own or might be a short form of such fashionable proper names as Penelope or Josephine. Fewer than 50 baby girl received all three spellings of the name in the US in 2017.
Milo, which has roots in both Latin and Old German and can mean either soldier or merciful, is the name of an ancient Olympic wrestler and of Milo Ventimiglia of the popular TV show This Is Us. It ranks Number 224 in the US. (Source)
