Lyra. This one has the potential to be a great 2021 name!

Lyra would be a perfect addition @ethelmary. It’s only missing because it made the list last year! How right we were :wink:

Caspian - I feel like I’ve seen that one popping up a lot lately, and it goes perfectly with names like [name_u]Cato[/name_u] and [name_u]Constantine[/name_u].

Dove: A sweet and spunky nature name, and I think it will soar higher now that [name_f]Katy[/name_f] [name_u]Perry[/name_u] and [name_m]Orlando[/name_m] [name_f]Bloom[/name_f]’s daughter is called [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] [name_u]Dove[/name_u] (same might happen for [name_f]Daisy[/name_f], too).

[name_m]Ambrose[/name_m], [name_u]August[/name_u] and [name_m]Elio[/name_m] came to mind. Also, Alba (I know Elio and Alba are very similar to two names on the list already, Ezio and Alma, but they still seem appropriate).

Definitely! Those last two have also made previous lists, or they’d be on this year’s for sure. I know you’re a big fan of [name_m]Elio[/name_m] in particular :sun_with_face: :wink:

Persephone came to mind! It’s quite popular on the Nameberry charts already.

Also possibly [name_f]Clementine[/name_f], [name_m]Alistair[/name_m] (I see a lot of [name_m]Alistair[/name_m] here but nowhere else!) and [name_f]Ariadne[/name_f]. :slightly_smiling_face:

Benedict, [name_u]Sparrow[/name_u], and [name_f]Marigold[/name_f] are ones I see on Nameberry increasingly.

Andreas, [name_f]Ione[/name_f], [name_f]Athena[/name_f] :smiley:

I feel like [name_u]Clove[/name_u] has been gaining traction on here and could be the next [name_u]Sage[/name_u]. Works for all genders and is a good alternative to [name_u]Cove[/name_u]. Not sure if it was on any previous lists though!

Also I’ve been seeing lots of Isadora!

There are definitely some good ones here! I’ve been seeing a lot of [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f] around here as well.

I loooove [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f] :heart_eyes: I think it looks a bit alien to a lot of people but I’ve met a few and it’s perfect IRL too.

Maybe [name_u]Jasper[/name_u]. I feel like I’ve been seeing [name_u]Jasper[/name_u] around here a lot.

How about [name_f]Colette[/name_f]? I’m not sure if it was on a previous list, but I’ve seen it on the forums a lot and it seems to match the list really well!

Shasta for a girl, [name_m]Wilkie[/name_m] for a boy.

Thea - Girl and [name_m]Haynes[/name_m] (or [name_m]Haines[/name_m]) - boy

Mirren for girl, [name_m]Bramwell[/name_m] for boy.

([name_m]Can[/name_m] I vote more than once?)

Yes!, [name_f]Colette[/name_f] is a good one!

@Harvest-Endellion of course! We can have a best 127 names for 2021, no problem :wink:
