As 2014 slowly comes to an end, the “baby name experts” are making their predictions for the new year. As always, pop culture and current events have a lot of influence on baby names. This past year, names from Frozen, Game of Thrones, and Downton Abbey were quite popular. With Kate Middleton expecting baby #2, there’s a lot of buzz over what she’ll name the new baby. Of course, people will choose to name their babies similarly.
Based on names that have skyrocketed in years past and trends we are seeing all over the world, here are the top baby names to look for in 2015…

With the birth of Chelsea Clinton’s daughter, Charlotte, earlier this week, I started to think about children of the presidents. While I was familiar with the names of the presidents and their wives, I was unfamiliar with the names of their children. Much to my surprise, the first families are filled with traditional names — but there are more unique names than I would have thought.
Take a look at some of my favorites names of presidents’ kids!

As a child, I was always fascinated by history. It was my favorite subject in school, and learning about the past made me happy. I always thought I was a little dorky for loving history so much, but I soon came to find that dorky is actually pretty darn cool.

When I was a little girl, I remember my mother explaining to us that we had a new baby cousin–and that his name was Glacier.
I remember giggling a little at the name, but now, as a mother myself, I love the uniqueness of my cousin’s name. And my uncle, a nature lover, went on to continue his nature-theme with his subsequent children, naming them Canyon and Sierra. In the spirit of admiring the beauty of nature, here are baby names inspired by nature.

I love names inspired by places. Some of my favorite names are Brooklyn, Austin, Egypt…or anything that reminds you of a place, especially if that place is exotic. Being Hispanic, I started thinking about names inspired by Latin cities. I found a few names that are beautiful and unusual. Maybe one of these will be the perfect name for your baby.
