2 June 2023 1:35PM

It's always a delicate fine line to find a name with the perfect balance of recognition and uniqueness, so this study is set to predict the trends for parents. 

Many feel that a name needs to be timeless, adaptable, and hold a special meaning. 

Luckily, experts have unveiled their predictions for the most popular baby names in 2023, and it seems that the top 10 is in for some significant transformations.

Names.org is known as the ‘baby name experts’ and conducts studies throughout the year to predict naming trends before they happen. 

“In past years, our predictions have proven to be some of the most accurate (if not the most accurate) name predictions online”

This year there have been a few cultural shake-ups across the world that seem to have impacted the list. 

One of note is that of the late Queen Elizabeth. The name has started to take a slight dip in popularity along with Camila. 

“Camila and Elizabeth also fall just short of the top 10, but they are declining in popularity,"

Maybe people are just feeling a bit of 'Royals' burnout at the moment. 

The constant top contenders, Oliver and Olivia, are expected to maintain their positions within the top 10 for yet another year. 

However, there are some emerging names sneaking up that might soon dethrone them. 

Without further adieu, here is the list...
