The baby name. Few things are more important or more argued about in the months leading up to a baby’s birth. Do we go classic or trendy? Sweet or strong? In 2015, the classics seemed to win out.
SheKnows Baby Names is a must visit for any parent picking a name, and when we took a look at searches in 2015, we saw parents love the names that have stood the test of time, with Biblical name Joshua stealing the top spot of the Top Baby Names of 2015.
Meaning the “savior” or “deliverer,” Joshua just beat out another Bible name, James, which was derived from the Latin, Jacomes. In fact, the top 10 saw plenty of names with a religious bent, from Joseph to Isaiah, Michael to John.
Another hot trend? J names lead the pack, making up nearly one third of the names in the top 50. From Jonathan to Jordan to Jaden, moms and dads are clearly jonesing for names that start with the 10th letter of the alphabet.
So what other names are sure to pop up on the playground in a few years? Here’s the entire list!
