If Name nerds had a holiday it would surely be around Mother’s Day each year when the U.S. Social Security Administration releases its annual updated list of the most popular baby names. Check out the video at the end of this video to hear about the most popular names and changes to the list. Today though, let’s look at names smack in the middle of the new Top 1,000. Names in the middle, or the “sweet spot,” rank between 455 and 555 in popularity and are often familiar without feeling overly done. Here are the mid-popular names of 2018:
Truly an eclectic list!
Many classic contenders like Frances, Phillip, Albert, and Rosemary.
Then we have some names like Kylee, Adan, Kathryn, and Ronin that rank higher in the chars with other spellings.
Alexis tops the mid-popular list on the male side, though originally a male name it has been more popular for girls in recent decades.
Exotic beauties Jimena and Aitana stir up the girls list.
So which names are your mid-popular favorites? I’d choose Maximilian and Rosemary, two timeless choices with sweet natural nicknames Max and Rose.
