As we enter the final month of 2018, it’s the perfect time to begin speculating on the various trends of next year. Specifically, what we’re all wondering is what is everyone going to name their new babies? Baby names are tracked in many ways. The Social Security Administration compiles rankings every year based on birth certificate data in the United States.

Parents might be interested in tracking the trends for any number of reasons. Some want to get ahead and claim a name before it’s cool. Others might want to avoid having their little one be one of many with the same name come kindergarten, although, in this age of unique names, there’s little chance of that happening! Which names can you expect to see a lot of in 2019? Read on for our picks!
