Baby Names of 2023 Wrap Up
When you first find out you’re expecting you’re filled with all sorts of emotions - happiness and excitement, sometimes you’re surprised and anxious. You start chatting about all things baby, what bassinet to buy, what your birth plan is, do we find out the gender and do I really need a breast pump?

Here are some names that debuted in the top 100 list for the first time!
The past year we have also seen gender neutral names become super popular, like Charlie, Riley, Jordan, Jesse and Casey. It is also becoming more common for parents to switch up the spelling of classic and traditional names to make their children’s name stand out.
