8 New Baby Names to Watch for in 2019

Jan 2nd 2019


A brand-new year means brand-new baby name trends. Here are eight best bets for 2019 style. These names were all unusual last year, but their combination of fashionable sound and new, breakout star power has them poised to rise in the year ahead.

Baker (M)
This energetic surname was left behind by the tradesman trend that sent names like Carter, Cooper, Tyler and Parker to the top. Thanks to Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, that should change in a hurry.

Kiki (F)
The name Kiki has always been a step apart from the likes of Mimi and Fifi. It has bold and creative associations, which actress KiKi Layne of If Beale Street Could Talk helps bring to the fore. Look for it to emerge as a fresh nickname option for almost any K name.

Dua (F)
"New Rules" singer Dua Lipa has such a catchy little name that many people assume it's a stage name. In fact, it comes from her family's Albanian heritage. Dua is an Albanian verb meaning "love."

Billie (F) 
Billie isn't a "new" name per se, but a 1920s-30s favorite that's been out of the picture for decades. Young singer-songwriter Billie Eilish should have more parents considering this name alongside rising hits like Charlie.

Zuri (M, F)
Zuri means "beautiful" in Kiswahili, and is traditionally a girl's name. Thanks to a male Zuri in the year's top movie Black Panther, it's now ready to rise for girls and boys alike.

Mallex (M)
Outfielder Mallex Smith was one of the year's breakout baseball players with the Tampa Bay Rays. Expect x-hunting parents to take note of his name, which his mother created as a twist on Alex for an all-M family.

Kiernan (F)
Kiernan is an Irish surname that comes from the similar-sounding given name Tiernan. It has usually been a boy's name, but actress Kiernan Shipka of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina could change that.

Alaiya (F)
The name of a baby on the TV series Love & Hip Hop, this supremely "liquid" name is a smart bet to be the latest reality tv-launched hit.

Additional Kiki's: Ruth Bader Ginsburg went by the nickname Kiki in her youth, and Kiki is the main character in the film Kiki's Delivery Service by director Hayao Miyazaki.

Kiki was (is?) also Kirsten Dunst's nickname. She had troubles pronouncing Kirsten as a young child, hence going by Kiki as a nickname.

Also, the “Kiki do you love me?” dance/meme that was EVERYWHERE.

Name kiki is so adorable, cheerful and kind a cute name for little girl. i wonder what's is going to be when she became a grandma. I don't think that name would be fit for her and make her feel Confidence to use it.

I wanted to name my daughter Charlie, or Johnnie. Her father said NO. We landed on Storie. Now that she is 6. I see that no other name would have fit her personality! :-)
