Name Trends 2016 and Beyond
When it comes to choosing a baby name parents-to-be get to this task as responsibly and creatively as they can. Indeed, choosing a name for the bundle of joy you are expecting can be difficult and stressful.
According to a recent Time poll on Millennial parents 60% of them think it’s “somewhat, very, or extremely important that their child’s name be unique.” This number quite differs from past generations (44% of Gen-X’ers found it important, and only 35% of Baby Boomers said the same). As the demand for uniqueness grows, today’s parents come up with the most one-of-a-kind name choices making this brain teaser a creative, unexpected, classically cool, and top-secret experience until their beloved baby is born.
Every year we see fresh and the most unexpected trends in baby names. The top ones are mostly based on what is happening in pop culture these days including books, movies, fashion, and celebrities. Emma, Olivia, Noah, Liam - all these names have become super popular in masses in 2015.
Yet, when some parents decide to follow pop trends, others prefer to consider more indie baby names chosen by a particular lifestyle; names that are uncommon, but still very unique and meaningful.
Our predictions for the hottest baby names in 2016?
Many old-school names will always stay in trend. Naming your baby girl after your loving grandmother (Lydia, Ruby, Margaret, etc.) is classy. But classy is not what we are really after here, is it?
What is especially unique and hot this year is turning to our Mother Nature and its earthy vibes. Names coming from natural wonders of our planet become the most inspiring for the parents who love outdoors, explore the globe, and admiring the power of nature. Names of flowers, rivers, trees, waterfalls, plants, mountain peaks, stones - everything that illuminates freedom, the spirit of the wild, and simple beauties of the Earth carries along a certain living imprint many parents want to pass to their babies.
Here are some beautiful baby names related to nature and the universe that we at Wild Dill have fallen in love with.
Maple, Thyme, Osage, Azolia, Catalina, Elm, Spruce, Ebony, Aster, Dahlia, Primrose, Sage, Willow, Dani, Risco, Mace, Rowan
Breeze, Dawn, Desert, Echo, Zen, Sunrise, Morning, Freedom, Rainbow, Om, Peace, Rain, Melody, Karma, Harmony, Feather, Light
Jupiter, Aries, Cloud, Moon, Nova, Starbright, Pluto, Orion, Eclipse, Venus, Space

5 Ideas for Fun & Useful Natural Baby Gifts
Whether it’s a holiday, birthday party, or the first baby shower of a friend of yours, it’s impossible to imagine celebrating these occasions without giving gifts. Gift giving is the most rewarding and happy experience all along the way from choosing a gift to actually presenting it. Especially, gift giving turns into a magical process when you choose something special for a little one. Either for your own kids or for your friends’ babies choosing gifts at times becomes the most complicated task because here a gift is more than just a gift, but a purposeful contribution into a child’s future.
At Wild Dill baby store we truly believe that gifts not only strengthen the bonds between people, but also help direct the future of someone. Presents are imaginative and reflect how we see the recipient. We give nice clothes to someone we think could dress better or a new book to challenge someone’s mind. But with giving gifts to babies it’s vital to spend a little extra time and think through what a gift should be like, so that it not only serves a purpose, but is also healthy and safe for a baby.
Organic clothing for babies and fair trade children’s toys are the gifts worth considering. Not only fun and creative, but also natural, these gifts will be remembered and parents approved. Giving fair trade baby products and organic fair trade baby clothing shows that you care about a child’s health, you don’t neglect the fact how your gift will affect the baby, and you give your respect to the parents who wish only the best for their children.
