Move over Sophia and Jackson, a new report released by baby name website Nameberry has officially put these popular baby names in the ‘so 2015’ category.


The website has analysed the names of babies born in the last month to predict new naming trends emerging for 2016.

Planets, TV characters, and even Instagram filters, are said to be influencing parent’s choices when it comes to giving their newborn a name for life.
