Baby Names Trends Are Unique Names
Baby Name Trends
The new trend for naming babies is “unique”! More parents are choosing unusual baby names instead of those that are more traditional and popular. A poll conducted over the past few months shows an overwhelming 63% of more than five thousand voters preferred to name their baby with a unique name that no one in their area had. The next choice in line was naming a baby after a family member, which received 19% of the votes. Names from the Bible came in third, receiving 10% of the votes.
What has influenced the rise of the new trend in baby naming? It seems that more and more parents are looking for the most inventive and distinctive name for their new child.Traditional baby names stemming from religious or cultural origin have been given by parents expressing their pride in their cultural and religious heritage with the desire that their children will continue the noble traditions and way of life that have been upheld by many a generation before them. Popular names have come and gone, but tradition has remained for centuries, defining an ongoing stream of given names in various cultures and peoples. So what is this new desire to stem away from tradition and search for the most exotic name one can find?
Today’s multi-cultural society, fueled by the Internet and access to multiple cultural traditions have made today’s society less traditional. Tradition requires boundaries, and when none are present society becomes less defined and more universal. Perhaps it is a subconscious response to this new society that is sparking a desire to find the most unique name for a baby. With tradition practiced less and our senses and wonder exposed to such a vast array of different lifestyles and world cultures, it is no wonder that is it such a growing trend to look for the new, the fresh, the most inventive. With the best intentions for their future child and its success in life, parents are looking for the name that will distinguish their child from the crowd and give them an individuality that will follow them throughout their lives.
