It's Baby Name Week!

May 9th 2018

This Friday, May 11, the new baby name year begins. The U.S. government is releasing the annual name popularity statistics, and I'm expecting a lot of name news to talk about.

I hope you'll join us here to talk about the new top names, the fastest risers, broad trends in naming, and the inevitable eye-opening surprises. (Remember that last year's fastest-rising name was Kylo, as in the lethal Kylo Ren of Star Wars!) I'll be posting frequently, and the BabyNameWizard user community—here and in our forums—is full of the smartest, funniest and most knowledgeable name enthusiasts you'll ever meet. Please come to ask advice, check out the news, or just talk about names and trends.

On to Name Week!
