I am reading a book right now called Freakonomics that says these names will be HOT in 2015. I am so upset....Phoebe is on the list! And so is Quinn! And we've chosen Phoebe Quinn for our daughter.

Here's some more from the list:

GIRLS:
Aviva
Ansley
Annika
Lara
Maeve
Philippa
Quinn
Waverly
Linden

BOYS:
Aldo
Ansel
Asher
Flannery
Johan
Keyon
McGregor
Sander
Sumner
Harper
Beckett

I'm mad Linden is on there! I only really like 3 names for girls and Linden is one of the three! I can see Harper becoming popular more for girls than boys. Interesting.

I remember seeing a list of 23 each online from the Freakonomics author .... here it is!

If you don't want to click the link, the full 23 are

1. Jackson
2. Aidan
3. Carter
4. Liam
5. Cooper
6. Oliver
7. Asher
8. Maximilian
9. Bennett
10. Anderson
11. Johan
12. Will
13. Aldo
14. Beckett
15. Finnegan
16. Reagan
17. Keyon
18. Harper
19. Ansel
20. Flannery
21. McGregor
22. Sander
23. Sumner

1. Emma
2. Ava
3. Grace
4. Ella
5. Avery
6. Maya
7. Isabel
8. Sophie
9. Kate
10. Quinn
11. Fiona
12. Annika
13. Phoebe
14. Maeve
15. Ainsley
16. Lara
17. Aviva
18. Clementine
19. Eleanora
20. Linden
21. Marie-Claire
22. Philippa
23. Waverly

I agree with the IDEAS behind the predictions ... the sounds are right and all, and the trends ... but I don't know if those will be the exact names (really, probably not!). Quinn makes sense because it fits the surname trend, and if -son names switch over to boy use entirely, I can see parents looking for surnames that don't end in -son for their daughters. Maybe they'll find Quinn. Or maybe some other surname, who knows?

I can't see Harper or Flannery ever being in the boys' top 20 unless we COMPLETELY stop teaching American Lit in high school! Come on, naming boys after Harper Lee and Flannery O'Connor? I think Harper and Flannery will more likely be popular for girls in 2015.

I can see Eleanora too. Eleanor is rising fast at the moment; it could fade away and be surpassed by the frillier Eleanora and Leonora by 2015.

The one I fear becoming popular is Clementine! If this baby is a girl it will either be Clementine or Susannah. Susannah is rising now so I'm leaning more toward Clementine; that would be AWFUL!

ETA: The way everyone talks about the Hispanic population growing, I expect the REAL list in 2015 will have a lot more Spanish names!

Well shoot ... I was thinking about it last night, and I dreamed that DF named the baby Susannah. I was screaming "NO, NO, we have to use Clementine before 2015 because Clementine will be a top name then!"

I dont really like any of the names on that list so I guess the name I pick wont be very popular

Edited cause I just saw the long list

Aww I like Jackson and Liam but I didnt think they were/going to be THAT popular. Oh well, I guess its good popularity isnt a big factor in my naming choice lol.

Hey, at least you'll be several years ahead of the trend... everyone will know (just by your daughter's age) that you were a trend setter, not a follower!
