What Everyone Is Calling Their Babies in 2016

Baby names are off to a unique start for 2016!

Naming site, Nameberry, released a list of the most popular monikers for the year so far.

To come up with the final list, Nameberry ranked the names which attracted the most curiosity and clicks on its website over the past six months.

And if we are to believe them, we will be seeing a bunch of Arabellas and Wyatts over the next year to come! 

While there are some traditional names in the girl's list, such as Olivia, Charlotte, Ava, Amelia, the boy's list was topped by a newcomer: Ezra. 

This could be after one of the two famous Ezra's emerging in recent years (actor Ezra Miller and singer Ezra Koenig), or just a general interest in Biblical names! 

The boy's list was full of old-school, Biblical or literary names, including Silas, Atticus and Asher. 

Here are the list of names you will be seeing more of in 2016 and beyond!
