These are the names I definitely think have been popping up a whole lot lately! The others listed I have heard but not near on the same level.

If I had to guess I'd say they will all make it to top 150 or so, Asher Beckett Everett and Finn will probably be top 100 in the next few years.

I think all the names ending in the -en sound will get popular as that is such a trend with boy names nowadays.

I think the SSA list's Change in Popularity chart helps to determine how popular names will get.
Thank-you GraysMama for my beautiful siggy!

Asher - already very popular
Beckett - dont think it will make it on the top top 500 even
Bennett - same as above
Cohen - also already very popular, what makes this not so popular, is the spelling only
Deacon - never in the top 500s
Everett - maybe top 300
Finn - already popular
Greyson - already popular
Griffin - never in the top 500
Holden - same as above
Hudson - same as above
Jude - top 150
Levi - top 150
Nolan - this is also very popular already.. prob top 100s

I think popularity is very relative, and it difficult to predict. A lot of moms don't care, and a lot of moms do. So there will be plenty of people still using the top 100 names, and plenty of people that draw from the lower ranks, thereby pulling those names into the top 100 eventually. People will create popularity by trying to avoid it. *shrug*

That being said, you can go to the SSA website and search ech name - it pulls up the top 1000 rankings for the last 8 years, and you can see what the name is doing and how far it's jumped in one direction to better predict if it's going to keep jumping.

Very hard to say...I know I have said that many of those names will get "really popular" but for me, in the top 100's = really popular

Asher, Jude, Levi, Hudson & Nolan- I DEF think these will make the top 100 in the next 5 years...I consider these to be quite popular.
Bennett, Cohen, Holden & Greyson- I think we will see a significant rise but *hopefully* nothing above the mid/low 200's. I think Cohen will see the biggest increase.
Everett, Deacon, Beckett & Griffin/Finn- Probably a somewhat significant rise but not as much as the ones listed above.

This is obviously just my opinion going by what I've observed pretty much only on JM I could be SO far off (and with Bennett I hope I am!)

Greyson, Hudson, Levi, Nolan - will all be in the top 75, as they are all pretty close right now.

Asher, Cohen, Jude - top 100-150

Bennett, Everett, Finn, Griffin, Holden - top 150-250

Beckett, Deacon - top 400ish

Thanks everyone!

I really want to stay out of the top 100 and right now all those names are out of the top 100, I am just so indecisive when it comes to boy names, Jared is hoping for Atlas as a first name, maybe we'll go with that.
