Did you know that more people get pregnant in December than any other month? That means that in the coming weeks, a whole new batch of expectant mamas will be getting the big news, and starting to imagine every detail of their forthcoming little human—including what on earth their name will be.

To help, Nameberry has rounded up the top-searched names in recent months in order to predict the 100 hottest baby names 2019 has to offer. For girls, powerful Greek names are on trend, such as Calliope, Cressida, and Andromeda (meaning “advising like a man”). And short and simple names like Ada, Wren, and Nola are making repeat appearances from last year’s list.

Meanwhile, boys names are still trending retro, with puckish monikers such as Kit, Otto, and Milo making the list. But there are also a handful of stronger names associated with historical leaders and activists, such as Cassius, Malcolm, and Desmond that are also gaining speed.

Did your favorite make the list? Take a look below and find out.
