Baby Names Parents Probably Regret The Most


Baby name regret has become increasingly common. According to a 2016 study conducted by Mumsnet, one in five U.K. parents wish they chose a different name for their newborn. While you’d expect new moms and dads to regret choosing quirky names, this was actually not the case. Instead, parents who were surveyed said they started disliking their child’s name within the first six weeks of birth because it was too common. (1) Sophia is the most popular baby name in the world. (2) Noah peaked in 2012, but it’s remained one of the most popular boy names ever since. (3) Charlotte ranked at number four in Canada and number 15 in the U.K. last year. (4) Names define generations and Jaxon is no exception. Unique spellings have become a trend among millennial parents. (5) This one’s pretty obvious. Thanks to the animated film “Frozen” the name Elsa will forever be associated with Disney. Parents want unique names for their kids rather than common ones is an interesting trend as there are actually many benefits to it, including “individual identity”………Ed
