This New Baby Name Trend Will Melt Your Heart

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a sucker for adorable baby names and really, there is nothing cuter than meeting a tiny baby with a perfect, georgous name.

Not content to settle for your basic array of baby names, modern day parents will basically stop at nothing to find a unique name for their little bundle of joy. According to My Domaine, the latest trend in baby names takes inspiration from our chic cousins, the Swedes, with Swedish baby names rapidly growing in popularity.

While many of these names are super popular in Scandinavia, in New Zealand and Australia they are still relatively uncommon, making for the perfect, unique spin on some of the more popular English baby names.

With the popularity of Frozen, the name Elsa is becoming increasingly popular, along with other girls names like Agnes, Stella and Freja. For boys, names like Hugo, Elias, Viktor, Lucas and Axel are all becoming popular. Talk about adorable!
