Shockingly, we’re *almost* halfway through 2019, which means...the results are in for the most popular baby names of the year...so far.
The names on baby-name site Nameberry’s annual list are more unique (and low-key adorable) than ever: Posie took the crown as the number one spot for girls, replacing Olivia, which held the title in 2018. Pop culture played a role as well. Thanks to hit TV show This Is Us actor Milo Ventimiglia, Milo became number one on the male side.
Also random but amazing: Names with ties to Ancient Greece are very hot right now. Aurora, goddess of the dawn, landed at number four for girls, and Atticus, a well-known Roman literary figure hit number three for boys.
Peep the rest of the list for some aww-worthy baby naming inspo below.
