If you’re expecting a baby, chances are you’ve already started the name list. Heck, even if you’re not expecting, you might have a list of names you want to give your future kids. But if you’re getting down to the wire within your nine months, you’ll need to start shortening that list before baby arrives. Sure, you can wait after his or her birth to see which name suits baby best. But looking at the top 2018 baby boy names and baby girl names and having a name picked out in advance will save you and no-name a lot of trouble. For example:

“He’s a sweetheart, that one! What’s his name?” the nice old lady on your block asks. “Well, I’m not too sure,” you respond. “Got any ideas?” If you can avoid that awkward interaction, then why wouldn’t you?

To help aid your decision, Names.org released its predicted Top 10 2018 baby boy names (and baby girl names!). The rankings of these names are based on the most popular names of recent years because more often than not, baby names that were popular during the past few years are still at the top of the list now.

Combined with recent user searches on Names.org, the site is confident that we will be seeing a large amount of baby boys born in 2018 being named the following:

  1. Noah
  2. Liam
  3. Benjamin
  4. Oliver
  5. William
  6. James
  7. Elijah
  8. Lucas
  9. Mason
  10. Michael

Names.org also predicts that there could be a few game-changing names that could affect their current predictions. Matthew and Mateo, Jackson and Jaxson, Grayson and Greyson, and Aiden and Ayden are names and variations that could end up on the actual Top 10 list.

Here’s hoping these names and their rankings will help you narrow down your list. If not, scour the thousands of names, their meanings, and their rankings on Names.org. Remember, baby no-name is not waiting for anyone.
