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.

Top 5 Girls’ Names

Posie

Borrow this queen’s last name and tweak the spelling just slightly.


Isla

Let your bb have something in common with this hilarious actress.


Olivia

Sure, it’s been a popular name since the early 2000s, but why not share it with Olivia Wilde? Oh...and Taylor Swift’s cat.


Aurora

Sleeping Beauty but make it 2019.

Maeve

This name is meant for a boss. Just like Emma Mackey’s character in the high-larious Netflix show, Sex Education, or Thandie Newton’s badass robot in Westworld.

Top 5 Boys’ Names

Milo

Yeah, this tracks.

Jasper

Sounds dreamy and dashing, not unlike a certain Twilight vampire.

Atticus

Oh hay, fave literary character.

Theodore

Imagine all the nicknames! Teddy! Theo! Is your heart exploding yet?! Same.

Asher

Ah, yes. The name of a dude who is definitely going to steal your heart real soon.
