Naming site reveals the surprising trending monikers of 2022

Is Gary’s name making a comeback? Naming site reveals the surprising trending nicknames of 2022 – including David, Sarah and Thomas

  • Gary appears on the list of ‘trending’ names published by the UK Baby Names website
  • Others to make the cut include Paul, John, Peter, David, Matthew and Thomas
  • For the girls, Sarah is included in the list – along with the less surprising Emma and Olivia

Gary’s name seems to be making a comeback for a new generation of baby boys.

The nickname, which had fallen out of favor with millennial parents, featured on a list of ‘trendy’ baby names published by the UK Baby Names website.

A few other unusual names for newborns were also on the list: John, Ian and Paul.

Other traditional names on the trending list for boys are: James, David, Peter, Jack, Oliver, Thomas and Matthew.

For the girls, Sarah makes the cut – with the less shocking Olivia and Emma.

However, despite an apparent trend among parents, Gary is yet to make the top 100 names.

Meanwhile, UK Baby Names has also shared a short list of the most popular names with its users.

Paul appears again for the boys, alongside Eugene, Percy, Lars, Alan, Artie, and Bernard.

The names of the daughters Kimberly, Claire, Cassidy, Michelle and Madeline are mentioned.

Last month the most unpopular baby names so far for 2022 were revealed, with Kristen, Suzanne and Lorraine making the rankings.

For the boys, Bill, Chad and Stuart have been included as nicknames which fail to inspire new parents.

The list, published by baby experts Bella Baby, used statistics from Baby Name UK and Google Trends to pull together the results.

The most unpopular girl names included Angela, of Italian and English descent, ranked 683 out of 5,493.

Kimberly – which means “from the wood of the royal forest” and “from the meadow of the royal fortress” – was from 1013, and Alexa – a form of the male name Alexander – was from 1687.

The name Nicole – of Greek origin – also failed to impress and placed at 279.

Japanese geographic name Kobe made the boys list at 298 out of 5,493, as did Jeffrey at 1,825 out of 4,608.

Nigel – meaning ‘champion’ – also fell out of favor, as did Ashton and Graham.
