And as for what’s still to come? Here are a few baby name trends on the horizon:

Names free of gender stereotypes

Elliott is the real sleeper hit. With several popular spelling variations (including Eliot and Elliot), and equal popularity for both sexes, odds are you’ll find another Elliott in your child’s class.

New wave nature names

While you’ll still find plenty of Willows and Lilys, there’s a whole hot new set of nature names on the rise. Look at Colt for boys, and Magnolia, Luna, Hazel, and Aurora for girls. And according to Nameberry, naming after rare gems like Amethyst, Emerald, Garnet, Topaz, Sapphire, and Jasper is on the rise.

Animalia names are also on the rise for parents who want to add a touch of fierceness to their child, Nameberry adds. Whether it’s a first name or middle name, expect to meet a Bear, Falcon, Fox, Hawk, and even Koala.

Baby names with the “x” factor

Baby names with an “X” involved scored big for boys, including the popular Alexander variation Xander, rock-inspired picks like Axl/Axel, short-and-sweet Dax (up 62 places on the list), top 100 favorite Xavier, and variant spellings for Jackson—Jaxon and Jaxson.

Game of Thrones-inspired names for girls

Plenty of people are still picking badass baby names like Khaleesi, Lianna, and Arya/Aria to give their daughters. But even the actresses themselves have inspired some baby naming, as Emilia (up 28 places), and Maisie (up 50 spots) get more love as well.

Names with Wild West swagger

Wyatt’s been popular for nearly a decade (and has even crossed the line into girls’ territory, thanks to Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher), but among the biggest climbers are Clyde, Boone, and Stetson for boys, and names like Jolene and Oakley for girls.

Nickname names

Forget the full-on formal names. Lots of people cut to the chase and just gave their kiddos the nickname as their official moniker, including Charlie, Frankie, Mike, and Theo for boys, and Ellie, Frankie, Jenny, and Millie for girls. (Heck, even the top baby name for boys, Liam, is a short variation on the classic William!)

Vintage nicknames are also making a comeback, according to Nameberry. Consider Archie, Alfie, Ike, and Freddie.
