When choosing a name for a child, some parents rely on the rating of the most famous names. There are three main parts in names, and they are first, middle and last name or surname. Here we will discuss only about first or middle names. In the lists of the most popular names for boys and girls, you can see both traditional classic names and unusual, rare ones. Some names remain the most popular for several years, others change.
Based on the rating of names, it can be concluded that most modern parents show conservatism in the choice of names and choose standard, familiar names. On the other hand, there is a tendency to update the standard set of names – there is a revival of old, forgotten names. There is growing interest in foreign names.
The most popular names in 2020
In 2020, all the trends that were in 2019 will continue. Traditional names remain the most popular names in the world. Most parents will choose these names for their children. A small% of names will change – this applies to foreign and unusual names.
The popularity of specific names forms under the influence of several factors: under the control of celebrities – people who have become popular this year, under the power of the heroes of the series. Sometimes the names of successful athletes, world champions and the Olympic Games, or the names of famous TV presenters leading various shows, become very popular. For example, the name is Maxim.
The world around is changing and changing fast enough. New types of technology, smartphones, cars, and other attractive things are appearing. Fashion is changing. The economic and political crisis is getting worse; many enterprises are closing; people’s desire to live well is growing.
All this leads to the fact that many people experience psychological and energy exhaustion, nervous breakdowns, and mental disorders have become more frequent all over the world. Therefore, the governments of many countries are beginning to pay more and more attention to the spiritual and psychological health of their people. Indeed, the healthier the people, the higher the state’s potential, both in the economic and political, cultural, and military spheres.
In the current global situation, some people intuitively began to change their names and surnames. People usually want to pick up a name or surname, not only with the best qualities such as good luck, career, and business success programs. But they also want the name and surname to give stress resistance and contribute to health and longevity.
Smart people ask themselves the question: why do they work for wear and tear, why do they make careers, do business, make money? – after all, not to leave all this to someone. Everyone wants to have time to enjoy the results of their work, what they have created, earned, built.
Of course, among young people who become parents, there are also quite a lot of smart people. They ask their child to choose a name that would not only be harmonious and contribute to success in society. But also this name will give their child stress resistance, a healthy psyche, committed to good health and longevity.
Of course, some people live the old-fashioned way. When choosing a name for a child, at best, they focus on the most common, popular names on the meaning of the name. All this can be found on the Internet for free. Therefore, the trend of the most popular, most common names will continue in 2020 and so on.
But in world society, the demand for names with the qualities of stress resistance, health, and longevity will grow. Some parents will intuitively choose names with precisely these qualities.
