These baby names are expected to trend in 2024 while these could go extinct

(KSWB) — With the new year comes a new list of popular baby names. From year to year, popular baby names can change drastically, with some classic names coming back into style while other names, like millennial names this year, go out of style.

BabyCenter gathers data from parents that register their names with the online media company, and as every year, have released their projections for the new year.

Did you name your baby Olivia, Isabella, Sophia, Noah, Liam or Oliver? If you did then you chose some of the most popular baby names of 2024, thus far.

At the same time, there are many names that are at risk of going extinct like millennial names, last names used as first names, and “-aden” sounding names.
