Coming Soon, to an all-girl preschool near you

Think about it. Twenty years ago, commonplace names we know now such as Alfie and Jasmine were much less popular. Here are just a few names I can imagine becoming much more popular in the coming twenty years:

Old Lady Chic

Edith

Dorothy

Olive

Maude

Weird, but wonderful

Shoshana.

Araminta. Popular amongst the London Telegraph namers, she’s sure to trickle down to use by us mere mortals.

Belphoebe. She has a lovely sound, and you can use the popular Belle nickname.

The Thorns of Rose

Rosemary

Rosalie

Rosamund

The Goddesses

Artemis. Eoin Colfer claimed this name as the name of his male character, so this name could easily be the next Ashley/ Madison.

Cynthia. From Greek Mythology.

Diana. From Greek Mythology. The late Princess of Wales

Hera. From Greek Mythology.

Nuala. From Irish Mythology, pronounced NOO-la,

The New Emily/Emma

Emmeline

Emmanuelle

Emer. The name of an Irish Goddess, who possessed the six virtues of womanhood.

Emery. Emory

Emerson

Others to look out for:

Adele

Lila

Leonie
