Baby Names of 2022 Wrap Up

Choosing a name when you are expecting is a tough decision to make before your little one arrives. It becomes part of their identity and follows them through their life journey, so there is just a little bit of pressure. We wanted to give all of our snuggly parents a hand, so as we approach the end of the year, we have decided to do a wrap-up of all our favourite baby names from the past year, and give you some inspiration for all the most popular names of 2022! 

Starting at the beginning of the alphabet, some of the most favourite names are names that start with the letter ‘A’. Girl names such as Athena, Arielle, Aurora, Amelia, and Aleyna were found to be very popular this year as well as boy names such as Asher, Ambrose, Atlas, Aiden & Adriel. These have been both a mixture of classics that are staking their claim in the charts, as well as other trending names that have become popular through the influence of culture.
