Next year's biggest baby names will be a mix of something old and something new.

Nameberry, the world's largest baby name website, recently released its list of The Top Names We're Watching for 2023, with some once-common names that haven't been popular in recent years joining more uncommon names that are on the rise.

Like in years past, a few of those names are influenced by celebrities. The moniker Archie has been on the rise since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle picked the name for their son, born in May 2019.

Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson's son Cosmo's name appears on the list, as does Tru, a variety on Khloé Kardashian's daughter name True, and Sunday, a name used by influencers The Labrant Family recently, but also by Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban.

Earlier this fall, Nameberry also talked about baby name trends for 2023 — from hue-inspired monikers to names with mix-and-match prefixes and suffixes.

"There's a sea change upon us," said Nameberry founder Pam Redmond. "Exactly how that will play out over the next ten years in terms of which names are up, which down, is more difficult to predict than the overall feeling that things are going to change a lot."

"The mood of names is going to change along with the mood of people," she added.
