When some people in the UK learn that they are going to have a baby in 2018, they already have the name they are going to choose, as it’s something they have been planning for years. However, other people tend to have no idea what baby name to choose because they have been focussed on trying to get pregnant in the first place, and also with the whole pregnancy itself.

Not everyone likes to go with tradition, and so choose an obscure baby name, or would rather go in to detail about searching for the meaning of a baby name even before choosing the most popular name for boys and girls.

So what are the most popular baby names for 2018 – We know that trends change, and so the most popular names for babies this year will not change too much from last year. In the past we have seen some old fashioned names become popular once again, although that trend seems to have changed once again.
