Idaho Parents Are Choosing Classic Names for Their 2023 Babies
THE BABY name game
At a time when parents around the nation are choosing fashionable, quirky, or super trendy baby names, BabyCenter reports Idaho parents are going another direction in 2023! And we love it. Kicking off Boise's 2023 baby name season was the birth of sweet baby Elora—the first baby born at St. Luke's Hospital. You can see her beautiful birth announcement here!
According to adorable data from the United States Social Security Office of the Actuary Baby in 2022, Idaho's parents rejected the nation's larger baby name trends. As reflected by the list below, ultra-trendy names like Bexley, Braxton, Capri, Ziggy, and Pixie weren't our cuppa tea.
2023 IDAHO baby names
While 2023 parents around the United States showed a penchant for micro-trends and tribal-themed named, Idaho parents said, "Thanks, we'll pass." Instead, they opted for familiar classics and romantic names that have staked a perennial claim, generation after generation.
Idaho moms and dads, if you're expecting a potato of your own this year, congratulations!
Whether you're a first-time parent, or a seasoned pro, there's no such thing as too much inspiration. And NameBerry agrees!
They've mastered the art and science of coupling their "world-class name expertise with a powerful algorithm that matches namers with the perfect names." This year, however, their name forecasters are predicting a major vibe shift Idaho parents probably won't dig. But that's for you to decide!
Today’s parents, along with society as a whole, are more individualistic than ever before. But political and cultural events of recent years have also given rise to an increased sense of tribalism.
