Cordelia, Archer and Silas – some of the most searched-for baby names of 2014

July 22, 2014

Popular website Nameberry has released its list of the most-searched names of 2014 so far – and it seems baby names are just getting more unusual.

Imogen for girls and Asher for boys are top of the lists, while Silas, Jasper and Milo have made their way into the top 10 for boys. Claire is the only new entrant in the top 10 for girls, and Cordelia for girls and Archer for boys are the fastest-rising names.

The list is based on the number of views of each name on Nameberry for the first half of the year. It doesn’t show what parents have actually called their babies, but signals which names they’re considering before their baby is born.

There were close to 200,000 views of Imogen, a Shakespearean name popular in England. There were almost 150,000 views of Asher, a Biblical name meaning fortunate or happy.

Nameberry says Ellie, Adeline, Ruby, Knox, Bodhi, Soren and Wyatt are also gaining popularity. The names that have dropped in views are Hadley, Everly and Merdia for girls, and Jayden, Gray and Aiden for boys.
