Not going anywhere: Baby names set to stay popular for the next decade
Trends can be a fickle thing.
One minute something is hot, the next minute not so much.
This, of course, goes for not only fashion, interior styles or music, but also things like baby names.
It's not hard to figure out which names are popular right now – pop by any creche and you are bound to find a lot of Sophie's and Jack's and probably some Levi's and Emily's too.
However, if you are keen to pick a moniker for your little one that will stand the test of time – at least for the next decade or so, baby naming website Bounty has compiled a list of baby names it expects to trend for the next 10 years.
Names like Nellie, Elodie and Anastasia are predicted to enjoy a decade of popularity with parents of girls, while Chester, Levi and Hudson head up the list of boys' names expected to last the distance.
"Having assessed over 300,000 names for the stand-out highest climbers over the last 12 months, we can predict which exactly which name trends are set to take off," a spokesperson for the website stated.
"This is because, outside of official birth registration lists (which are published 18 months behind) ours is the largest, most up-to-date baby names list in the UK – making it guaranteed to bring you the latest trends in baby names."
