Are you expecting a child in 2019? I am and I am freaking out! As a future first time mom, there are so many things that have me feeling anxious like the actual birth, paying for child care, and worrying I won't be a good mother. 

One thing that is not causing me stress is my daughter's name. My fiance and I had it picked out the day I found out I was pregnant back in early August. She will be here in about two and a half months. Can you believe it? I sure can't!

If you too are expecting, but maybe you aren't 100% decided on a baby name, I have some inspiration for you. Every single year, a list comes out with the most popular names. There are generally some lists that come out a few times per year predicting what baby name trends will be on top for the year. I have the first one for 2019 to help you choose the perfect name. 

What baby trends will be the biggest ones for 2019? 

1. Global Names: These will be names from diverse origins.

2. Non-Binary Names: These names can be used for both boys and girls.

3. Names Based on Muted Colors: Mauve, Lavender, Ash, etc.

4. Old School Nickname names: Mikey, Bobby, Ace, etc.

5. Celebrity Surnames: Beckham, Lennon, Bowie, etc. 

I really love these new trends for 2019, but I am still going to stick with baby girl's chosen name, Norah Lynn.
