Baby Name Predictions for 2020

Are you expecting a bub in 2020?  If you are, have you thought about what baby names might be trending in 2020?  Well there are some beautiful names around at the moment, in fact I think 2020 will be one of the best baby name years of all time.

Some of these names are from popular pop culture (Game of Thrones is still impacting our decisions when it comes to baby names) and television and movies are of course universally popular mediums for finding new names. 2020 is also highly influenced by place-names. So expect to see some Capital City baby names in the list!
