Pregnant woman thinking about modern baby name ideas

When picking my own baby’s names I wasn’t too worried about choosing something that was popular. 

I know many people like to steer clear of the top 50 most popular baby names when choosing their perfect moniker but I was happy for a common name as long as it was modern.

What are modern baby names?

Modern doesn’t necessarily mean a name that has just emerged recently. A modern name is something that is popular right now, has become very trendy or fits with a current baby name trend. 

Choosing a modern baby name also doesn’t  necessarily mean picking something that’s in the most popular baby name charts! It can also be about finding a baby name that’s a little bit edgy but also won’t seem out of step with current trends. 

So to help you pick the perfect modern baby name I have got more than 400 stylish choices for baby boys and girls!

They are in alphabetical order to make them easy for you to scan! I hope you find your perfect modern baby name here!
