I'm a naming expert and these are the outrageous names that are growing in popularity and are not slowing down | The Sun

A NAMING expert revealed the most outrageous baby names around at the moment, but suggested we may grow to love them.

The unique monikers aren't the average Tom, Richard or Harry but they are on the rise.

Names like Maverick – which is currently in the US top 50 – would have been incredibly rare but is on the rise.

The experts at Nameberry compiled a list of names that are likely to grow in popularity, but would you use one for your child?


Apparently this is not just a fashionably Dulux paint colour, it's also an increasingly popular baby name.

The turquoise trend is in motion and this moniker will be big in 2023 according to the pros.

The expert said: "If the likes of Navy and Azula aren't dramatic enough for you, you could go big with this colorful, nautical gemstone name.

"It has never been popular enough to rank on the US charts, but is occasionally spotted as a one-off."

You run the risk of someone saying your child's name several times, each one slightly more quietly than the time before.

But if you're cool with that, why not opt for the girl's name Echo.

The pro said: "Girl names ending in O, like Margo and Cleo, are popular with parents who want something offbeat yet feminine. 

"Echo, with its mythological and scientific associations, is increasingly feeling like a viable alternative. It is sometimes given to boys too."


Is it a cat? Is it a car? No! It's your newborn baby with a cutting edge name!

Animals are on the rise, think Bear and Wolfie, so why not name your child after one of the original Gladiators?

The expert said: "This wildcat name is occasionally used in the US, and we love its sleek yet name like sound (it's a mashup of Jagger and Joshua, right?)."


Step aside Posh and Becks, no one's calling their children Brooklyn anymore.

But they are naming their kids Bronx, which is apparently a very hot name choice.

But to be well and truly ahead of the trend, it's got to be Manhattan.

The pro said: "Originally from the Munsee Lenape language, the name of New York's beating heart was given to seven baby girls in 2021, and has sometimes been used for boys too."


To some it's a planet, to others it's a god, but to you Neptune could be the name of your first born.

The expert said: "Neptune debuted on the US baby name charts in 2021 — surprisingly late given the popularity of other mythology/space names like Apollo and Jupiter."


Despite featuring in Dylan Thomas' poetry and many other places over the years, this moniker will now only be known for one thing.

Villanelle is now Jodie Comer as a Russian assassin and it always will be.

But now people are using it for their daughters and it's set to grow in popularity.

Let's just hope there isn't an Eve in their class.

The expert said: "Inspired by that, 3 girls in England and Wales were named Villanelle in 2021. It's rich with nickname potential, but we're not sure if it sounds too villainous… or if it could be an appealing 'bad girl name' like Delilah."


We're all familiar with this traditional moniker, but have you heard it used for a girl?
