In five years? So many of those have been super popular and/or major trends for at least five years. I think they're wrong on some just because the trends will have gone completely stale by then.

There are a couple that don't fit that category, and maybe a few I have a hard time seeing as super-popular in 5 years, but not most of them.

I do think they're wrong about Harper. If it was on the girl's list I could see it, but not the boys. It is becoming more popular for girls and I think that'll scare more parents off of it.

Keyon is kinda cool, a nice variant from Kenyon. And the strange thing is I was thinking about the name Maeve a few days ago. The first four or five girls names are very popular now, so in about ten years there are going to be thousands of Ava's and Emma's in grade schools abroad. Luckily none of my names are one the list.

I don't know if I would say the most popular, but I can see them climbing the list. A lot of them are naming trends now. There are a couple that I don't agree with.

Hmm I think they are right about most of the names, but I think Aidan (and all -aiden/aidyn/ayden names) will have stopped being AS popular by then

I also think the Carter/Cooper/Conner/Connor type names won't be as popular by then.

I think Emma, Grace, Sophie & Isabel will ALWAYS be popular girls names

I think that many of the names they listed are popular NOW, and have the potential to climb the charts even more. There are a few on each list that I would question though.

I agree that I don't know if I see them being in the top 10 but I do see some of them climbing the charts. My opinions below

boys:
Jackson- already popular, will stay that way
Aidan- already popular, will stay that way
Carter- already popular, will stay that way
Liam- already popular, will stay that way
Cooper- hm...for some reason I see this one decreasing in popularity
Oliver- already popular, will stay that way
Asher- Not sure how I feel about this
Maximilian- nope
Bennett- yep...will continue to get popular, along with other surnames
Anderson- ehh I don't see a significant rise
Johan- disagree
Will- disagree
Aldo- disagree
Beckett- yep...will continue to get popular, along with other surnames
Finnegan- yep...will continue to get popular, along with other surnames
Reagan- pretty sure this has gone to the girls
Keyon- disagree
Harper- pretty sure this is all girl
Ansel- maybe...
McGregor- I can't see it really catching on
Sander- possibly but definitely not toping the charts...maybe making it into the top 1000
Sumner- possibly but definitely not toping the charts...maybe making it into the top 1000

Girls:
Emma- well duh
Ava- well duh
Grace- already popular, will stay that way
Ella- already popular, will stay that way
Avery- already popular, will stay that way
Maya- I think this will increase in popularity
Isabel- will increase because I *think* people will use this spelling thinking they are using a "unique" alternative to Isabelle
Sophie- already popular, will stay that way
Kate- I think this might rise a bit
Quinn- I see this increasing a good bit
Fiona- hm...not sure. I don't see this having a significant increase
Annika- disagree
Phoebe- disagree
Maeve- disagree
Ansley- the name yes, this spelling no
Lara- disagree
Aviva- disagree
Clementine- disagree
Eleanora- maybe make it in the top 1000 but not really popular
Flannery- disagree
Linden- yep... I see this one getting popular
Marie-Claire- disagree
Philippa- disagree...not in the U.S.
Waverly- maybe a little but I don't see a significant increase in popularity

I don't see these boy names getting popular.
Aldo - for one, it's too close to the dog food name Alpo
Reagan - this has gone to the girls
Keyon
Harper - is going to the girls
Ansel

I don't see these girl names getting popular.
Fiona - I think the Shrek association will put a stop to this being super popular for at least another 5 years.
Maeve
Ansley - yeah, not this spelling
Aviva
Clementine
Eleanora
Flannery - I just do not see it at all.
Marie-Claire - I think the magazine by this name will put a stop to this name becoming popular.
Philippa
Waverly

I really think it's hard to predict what names are going to be popular in 10 years because pop culture is such a big influence....and pop culture is hard to predict years in advance.
