The Ultimate List of Modern Baby Names (700+ Names!)


Inside: Choosing a name for your little one can be both stressful and exciting! That’s why I put together a comprehensive list of the best modern baby names to make sure you don’t miss any of the good ones. 

My husband slid the wrinkled paper across the table.

I scanned past the dark pencil scribbles, looking for the bright yellow highlighted baby names from a list of 100.

“Finally,” I sighed. We had narrowed it down to two!

Our Baby Naming Formula

My husband ultimately decided on “Hudson” for the first name and I picked “Forest” as his middle name.

And that’s the same formula we’ve followed with all of our children.

I create a list of favorites, my husband chooses the first name, and I choose the middle name. It’s worked out pretty well so far (if I do say so myself!).

But for our third baby, it had been years since I’d looked at a baby name list, so I decided to do a little “market research” to see what all of the cool moms were naming their kiddos.

And that’s how this post came to be!

So if you’re looking for modern, unique names, you’ve come to the right place. The following list has more than 700 modern baby boy and girl names.
