Trends and predictions for girls’ names

Which girls’ names might be filling the playground in a few years? Bounty is the most reliable, up-to-date place to look for clues

Trend names for girls

We take a look at which girls’ names are heading towards ‘on trend’ status in the next year. We scoured our list for the highest climbers from last year to predict which name trends are set to take off.

The Bounty Top 100 girls' baby names list is compiled from the thousands of Bounty mums we meet on maternity wards across the UK ensuring that our list is the largest, most up to date and shows the latest trends in baby names.

As predicted by Bounty last year Hallie, Luna and Clara have continued to climb - but smashing it this year is Ada most likely due to the name being the sister to Thomas "Tommy" Shelby in Peaky Blinders.

Ada is just one of the trends emerging for names ending with an ‘a’ sound. Names such as Myla and Arabella are all up by 12 places, 39 and 14 respectively. 

Yet a more traditional name trend continues with Julia up 18 places as well as Rosie and Clara

Having dramatically debuted into the Top 100 back in 2015 at position 51 (which of course had something to do with David and Victoria Beckham deciding to name their daughter Harper Seven in 2011) this year Harper has broken into the top 20 girls’ names and is now the 17th most popular girl’s name in the UK.

Here’s our full list of predictions for this year’s trend names for girls and their current position in the Top 100.

  1. Ada 73
  2. Myla 46
  3. Nevaeh 88
  4. Mila 46
  5. Julia 93
  6. Rosie 21
  7. Arabella 81
