Popular baby names in 2012 were influenced by the children of celebrities. In a recent blog post, online baby boutique Dorothy and Theodore blogged how celebrities are currently opting for less conventional place names for their children, as opposed to the old standby cities of Paris and London. Reese Witherspoon named her baby Tennessee, and Kourtney Kardashian’s daughter is now named Scotland.
Dorothy and Theodore also predict that firm favourites of 2012, Jacob and Sophia, will remain at the top of the list as most popular names for boys and girls. The newcomer Florence replacing Adele, as Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine enjoys increasing popularity in 2013.
Names inspired by flora and fauna are predicted to bloom in the year ahead, thanks to parents enamoured by the main character from The Hunger Games trilogy, Katniss Everdeen. Traditional names like Lily and Violet are being replaced with more exotic references to Clover, Poppy, Juniper and Primrose.
Parents not wanting to name their children after plants and herbs have another option according to Dorothy and Theodore. Animals have always been a heavy influence on names, and 2013 isn’t set to buck the trend. The creature deciding the names of babies across the globe this year will be the lion, with names such as Leon, Lionel, Lio, Leo and even Lion popping up everywhere.
Finally, the new film trilogy from Peter Jackson based on The Hobbit may prove a deciding factor for baby names in 2013. Names like Thorin, Dain, Bard, and Galadriel are predicted to appear more frequently, fresh in parents’ minds after seeing the films.
