2013 names predicted: Kindle, Pearl, Roy

UPI News Service, 12/30/2012 

A baby-naming website says it predicts next year popular U.S. infant names will include: Hashtag, Tweet, Android and Pearl, Florence, Nellie and Eleanor.

Officials of the social baby-naming website Belly Ballot, which collects real-time data on what names parents are selecting from around the globe, said based on naming data from more than 1,000 parents on the website, along with 10,000 votes from their friends and family, the website predicts the following naming trends:

-- Tech inspired names such as Kindle will be popular.

-- To create a unique name, many parents are choosing name combinations of two, three or more names such as Uma Thurman who named her daughter Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson.

-- Grandparents' and great-grandparents' names are making a strong comeback. Drew Barrymore named her daughter Olive so expect more kids named Roy, Charles, Frank, Albert and Bertha.

-- Not an entirely new trend, but more parents are using surnames for given names such as Grant, Kennedy, Hayes, Townes, Brick, Drake, Fletcher, Sutton and Copeland.

-- Using traditional names with unusual spellings such as Jaxon, Jaxen, Avah, Xakery, Josilyn and Braedyn.

In under 2 minutes, the Belly Ballot website allows parents to choose their favorite names and invite friends and family to vote on them via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
