As a parent, you are going to have to make many decisions. Some of those decisions are going to be made on a daily basis, even if you made the same decision the day before. There is one decision, however, that tends to be one of the first that any parent makes, and that is what to name the child.

As you can imagine, some names tend to be very popular and others are practically unheard of. Some of the popular names go along with names that are used in media, such as movie stars, singers, or other well-known celebrities. At other times, names just seem to trend for no particular reason.

NameBerry keeps a list of the names and they use that data to determine the top names for babies. In 2021, the results are already coming in and in the United States, the number one girl’s name is Luna. Some of the other names that made the list include Aurora and Maeve. On the boy’s names are some that have been around for quite some time, but the top three are Silas, Atticus, and Arlo.

It’s interesting to note that the ranking of these names is due to the popularity of visitors to the website and not necessarily what is being selected for babies at the hospital. It’s an unofficial list, but it does give you a good indication of what may be coming in the near future. If you want the official list for 2021, you have to wait until the end of the year when the Social Security Administration releases the official list.

Below is the list of the most popular boy and girl names from Nameberry.
