Baby Names No One Will Use In 2018

Baby Names No One Will Use In 2018


In 2018, it’s out with the old and in with
the new. There’s a lot of things to consider when naming
your baby, and one is that baby names cycle in and out of popularity. The last thing you want is your child to be
stuck with a name that is going to sound hopelessly outdated and old fashioned! So, let’s take a look at just some of the
baby names that no one is going to care about beyond 2018. Ashley The name Ashley dominated baby name lists
from the mid 1980s well into the 2000s, but its heyday is finally over. There are a ton of famous women named Ashley,
like Ashley Olsen, Ashley Tisdale, and Ashley Benson, even though the once male-only name
wasn’t popularly used for girls until the 1960s. While there are plenty of people with this
name today, fewer and fewer babies are being given the name. That decline in popularity means that by the
time your baby goes off to college, people will associate the name with middle-aged women. Nathaniel The name Nathaniel has been around for a long
time, and has roots that go all the way back to the Biblical era. It’s retained it’s somewhat old-time feel,
and it’s still mentioned in everyone’s American literature courses thanks to Nathaniel Hawthorne’s
The Scarlet Letter. The name saw a brief resurgence in popularity
in the 1990s, but it’s been declining ever since. The name officially fell from the top 100
names for baby boys in 2016, making Nathaniel a name that will be off everyone’s radar in
2018 and beyond. Isabelle For a few years in the mid-2000s, the name
Isabelle looked like it was going to rise in popularity along with the similar-sounding
Isabella, but its ascent to glory was brief. Isabelle is slowly fading into obscurity,
exactly as it did once before, in the middle of the 20th century. Even if you do end up using this name for
your baby, chances are good that people will end up getting confused and calling her Isabella
anyway, and since there are other, more familiar versions of this name — like Elizabeth — you
can compromise. Get the type of name you’re going for without
the inevitable difficulty, and everyone wins. Taylor and Tyler Taylor was at the height of its popularity
in the late 1990s, when this originally masculine name became popular for girls. In spite of the continued popularity of Taylor
Swift, the name itself has begun to drop off in terms of how many parents are giving their
babies this particular moniker. Perhaps parents are hesitating to give their
children the name of a singer who, while beloved, has become more known for her edgy music rather
than the sweet country style of her early years. The old Taylor is gone, and so is her name. Just like the similar-sounding Taylor is out
for girls, the name Tyler is out for boys. Tyler has also been used as a gender-neutral
name, but 2018 trends suggest it’s a name that’s not likely to be given to anyone. Caleb Cale is often used as a nickname for Caleb,
and that makes it a weird coincidence that the decline in popularity of the name comes
at the same time that the once-trendy food kale is also falling out of favor. While there is no evidence to indicate that
the two things are related, the timing is almost eerie. Whatever the reasons behind the downfall,
you can expect that no one post-2018 is going to care about the name Caleb, or eating kale. Alexa Once a mega-popular name, Alexa has seen a
huge drop in popularity in the last couple of years. It’s possible that it has fallen out of favor
because of Amazon Echo, a personal assistant device that answers to the name Alexa. Parents who don’t want their Echo triggered
every time they say their child’s name would be wise to shy away from the name Alexa, and
it looks like many parents are already doing just that. The only Alexa people will care about after
2018 is the one that can automatically tell you the temperature or the scores from last
night’s basketball game. How times have changed. Kaylee and Kylie The name Kaylee is fairly new, appearing only
in the mid-1980s. Its popularity was short lived, however, and
the name has been on its way out for the last couple of years. It’s happened so fast that it looks like 2018
may be the year that sees Kaylee fading into obscurity. The similar-sounding Kylie has a similar-sounding
story. It wasn’t really on anyone’s radar until singer
Kylie Minogue arrived in the late 20th century, and the name remained fashionable through
the 2000s, but it hit a downward spiral in 2016 when its ranking dropped drastically. You’ll still be hearing it thanks to bearers
like Kylie Jenner, but for babies? Not so much. Kaylee and Kylie aren’t the only baby girl
names beginning with the letter “K” falling out of favor, either. Other once-popular names that have recently
dropped in the ranks include Katherine and Khloe. It’s food for thought, especially if you’re
feeling tempted to pick a name that’s uber trendy. Parker The name Parker isn’t going to be totally
forgotten in 2018, but if you’re looking for a name for your new, bouncing baby boy, you
might want to give this one a miss. It’s largely lost its following as a top-ranked
name for boys, but it is becoming more and more popular as a name for girls, like Parker
Posey. In another couple years, we could see Parker
become a popular name for baby girls, at the same time mostly forgetting that it had once
been primarily given to baby boys… so you might want to think twice before labeling
your boy with what might become a very, very inconvenient moniker. Thanks for watching! Click the List icon to subscribe to our YouTube

  13. most of these names are the names of all the babies I know that have been born this year and last year so this lady was very wrong. Because I know a lot of people who are wanting to call their kids Isabelle parker tyler celeb and alexis

  14. People of the comments section. Don’t scream at “The List” because of this video. They aren’t saying that you can’t use the baby names. They are saying that these won’t be as popular in 2018. So CALM DOWN! (Also, it’s 2019 now and half these names are still going strong.)

  15. My cousin isabelle (2) twin siblings taylor tyler (3 months) caleb (2) alexa friend kaylee is my niece kiley three kindergarteners parker cousin

  16. I don't think there's anything wrong with those names,this topic is useless thus should be closed immediately

  17. Maybe instead of discouraging parents from naming their sons Parker because it could become a “girl name” you should encourage. It’s rather misogynistic and ignorant to imply a boy being feminine is a bad thing. With that attitude there will be no boy names left.
