Baby name megasite Nameberry recently released their massive list of the most popular baby names so far this year. They collect the popularity data based on baby names that receive the most views on their website. There are plenty of names that are totally spot on with my 2014 baby name trend predictions but there were definitely plenty of names I could have never predicted would be popular this year!
Here are 20 of some of the more surprising names that I found on Nameberry’s most popular baby names list!

Around this house, we LOVE musicals. OK, maybe my husband doesn’t love them quite as much as the rest of us (i.e. at all), but my toddler and I are big fans. When I was a kid, my favorite movies were Annie and The Sound of Music. I still have the words to all the songs memorized, and I have a feeling that my little one may follow in my footsteps. She loves to sing, and while she’s still too little to sit through a musical, we definitely listen to the soundtracks to our favorites quite often, and it got me thinking that Broadway musicals would make a great source of inspiration for a baby names list! These names would be perfect for musical-loving parents, but even if you aren’t, there are some pretty great names in this list.

How about taking a look at the baby-of-the-month name? From the the month of conception to the month of her due date, there’s more to a name than meets the eye.

Over the weekend, we watched The Little Mermaid for our weekly family movie night. Neither of my girls had ever seen it, and somehow I grew up in the ’90s without ever having seen the entire thing, so big chunks of it were new to me too.
Since I’m always thinking about baby names, I noticed several really cute ones that would be perfect for a little mermaid or merman.

Being strong and brave is something that we talk about almost daily in our home. With three little girls, it’s easy to tell them they’re pretty or cute or adorable. We have to make a conscious effort to make sure they know how strong and brave, funny and smart they are. We don’t want them growing up thinking that looks are the only important thing — we want them to have a diverse childhood. Instead of just playing with baby dolls, we want them exploring. We want them climbing trees and running through fields, throwing rocks and exploring nature. We want them to be adventurers!
If you are hoping for the same, consider an adventurous name for your little one. Here are 30+ examples of adventurous baby names for boys and girls…
