We are just a few days away from a brand new year! So we started thinking about all the new babies that were going to be born in 2012 and wondered what moms and dads will be picking out as names for all of those little bundles of joy.
Nameberry has revealed their top 100 girl, boy and unisex baby names for 2012.
At Blooming Bath, we of course are partial to names of the flowering variety like Violet (no. 4), Lily (no. 34), Ivy (no. 36) and Poppy (no. 37).
We are sad to report that Posy, a popular English name for girls didn’t make the top 100 for the new year, nor did Petal, which gained popularity a few years back with a character of the same name from the book and film, The Shipping News.
But, if you are planning on welcoming a Charlotte, Seraphina or Amelia to your family in 2012, you will be in good company, those were the top three picks for baby girl names. Asher, Finn and Henry won the top three slots, respectively, for baby boy names in 2012. The top three unisex names on the rise for the New Year include: Harper, Quinn and Rowan.
Whether you are planning on welcoming your own baby in the coming months or you’re already planning ahead for the baby shower gifts you will need to buy for friends and family, just a friendly reminder: Blooming Bath comes in yellow, blue and now pink! So there is a safe, soft and completely adorable baby bath with your favorite new baby’s name on it, no matter what name blooms in mind for 2012! Happy Blooming New Year!
