The Most Popular Baby Names Of 2014 To Date

We are past the halfway point of 2014 so it is about time we told you what the most popular baby names of the year are thus far


 

Oh baby names, there are so many of you! Choosing just one of you seems like one of the hardest things in the world. Is your baby’s name going to be traditional, or quirky? Symbolic or literal? There are just so many options!

Nameberry.com has just released their midyear list for the top 100 baby names of 2014. Nameberry bases its list on the number of views each name attracted on their site for the first half of the year. So while this list doesn’t look at what people are actually naming their kids, it “gauges which names parents are most interested in for babies due to be born in coming months,” according to Nameberry’s co-founder, Pamela Redmond Satran.

The list shows a heavy interest in celebrity and pop culture inspired baby names with Khaleesi from Game of Thrones making it to number 18, Katniss from The Hunger Games in the 14th spot and Elsa from Frozen at number 88.

Imogen and Asher are the top names for girls and boys respectively and they held these places in 2013 as well.

Imogen is a Shakespearean name that is very popular in both England and Australia but has yet to break into North American mainstream. Nameberry reports that Imogen was view close to 200,000 times in the first half of 2014.

Asher means fortunate or happy and, over the past few decades has raced its way into North American popularity. Asher received nearly 150,000 views from January to June 2014.
