Top Baby Names of 2011
We predict the most popular baby names of 2011. Plus, get inspiration from these celeb baby names we love
In 2009, we predicted vampire mania, feminine names and classic monikers to chart the course of 2010 baby naming trends. Read on to discover what our users searched for most -- and what we predict for 2011.
The appeal of the top names of 2009, Aiden (Irish, fiery) and Ella (English, beautiful fairy), continued through 2010. Aiden remained first for boys, while the girl's name Sookie (American, unknown) usurped Ella's position, knocking Ella to second place. Ella has a timeless, elegant flair, but it looks like readers are favoring quirkier names for girls.
Still in the top ten for boys: Wmffre (pronounced OOM-fre, German, variation of Humphrey, peaceful)! We, too, can't get enough of this unique name, which was 2009's reigning champ for boys, but users are now skewing towards names that are easier to pronounce.
