2016’s Naming Trends And Options For Boys

BabyCenter en Espaol surveyed almost 17,000 parents in the United States, Latin America, and Spain to uncover what parents look for in a name and why they chose the baby names they do.

The poll discovered, among other things, that most future parents chose a name simply because they liked it, because it had significance, because it represented something, or because it was unique. More than half of the parents polled said they looked up the name online to be sure nothing unpleasant showed up.

Latino parents were also looking for names that were not too expensive and complemented their surname. They also stated a preference for shorter Spanish names (a number of longer English names were less popular this year than in 2015).

Latino parents that were inspired by celebrities chose religious or spiritual names for their infant boys, as well as names of musicians, artists, and historical people.

2016’s Winners (And Losers)

So, what was the most popular boy’s name in 2016?

Santiago has been the BabyCenter moms’ favorite for the past nine years, and we were beginning to think he’d be that way forever! This year, though, we have a new champion: Mateo. Could it be because it means “God’s gift”?

Almost all of the top ten names from 2015 made it into the top ten this year. The only changes were Samuel, who slipped from 7th to 15th position, and Lucas, who jumped into the top 10, climbing from 16th to 9th place in 2015.

Adrián (up 39 positions), Izan (up 24), Salvador (up 22), and Hugo all had an unexpected increase in popularity this year (up 20).

On the other hand, some of the names that were popular among potential mothers in 2015 have fallen out of favor this year, including Juan, Ethan, Alonso, Máximo, and Damián.

If you’re searching for a name that wasn’t popular previously but made a big showing in 2016, consider Leonel, Jacob, Sergio, and Marcos. If you prefer a name that does not appear on the top 100 list, we can inform you that some names that begin with “C” or “D” fit into this category: Caleb, Ciro, Derek, and Dominic.
