First Baby Name Trend of 2014!
Fri, 01-03-2014 - 1:40pm

Just three days into 2014, a new baby name trend has emerged: The letter y.

According to the name, the first 50 baby names of the new year are a diverse bunch, with few repeats, few names that are already on the country's top 10 list, and some rather unique spelling choices. But there is one common theme: Names that have the letter "y" in them.

Among the list: Adilyn, Brooklyn, Emery, Layla,LilyMaya, Naythyn and Rylee.

And the First Baby Name Trend of 2014 Is...

What do you all think of this trend?  Will you be following it in 2014?

I do like the in/yn trend. Though it seems to me that the more popular a name trend gets, the more I tend to avoid it.

I don't mind the places where a y is SUPPOSED to be, but when you put it in artificially, like Rylee and Naythyn? No, thank you.
