Asha

Nameberry is predicting that Asha will quickly become one of the most popular baby names of 2024, thanks in part to the Disney movie, Wish, featuring a protagonist with the same name. Although the name has many different origins, Asha can mean anything from fortunate, happy, rich, and even life.

Kai

Kai is such a wonderful choice for a baby girl’s name and one that is quickly growing in popularity thanks to not only being cute but also gender-neutral. Kai is typically thought to be of Hawaiian origin, meaning “sea.” If you want to get creative, you can also spell the name Cai or Khai, or find your own variation of the name, like Kaia.

Birdie

SJ Strum, founder of the baby name consultancy company Baby Name Envy, noted on her Instagram that retro names are going to be big in 2024. She writes that retro names, like Birdie, are the “perfect blend of vintage gold, nickname as first name and main character energy.”

Aurora

The hold Disney has on the baby name market cannot be denied! Strum, in a press release with greeting card site Thortful, noted that while Disney-inspired names like Bambi and Minnie are becoming popular among celebrity babies, she predicts names like Aurora (after Sleeping Beauty herself) will top the charts this year.

Primrose

Katniss Everdeen may have been the hero of The Hunger Games series of books, but it’s her younger sister whose name is predicted to be one of 2024’s cutest and most popular new names. Babynames.com suggests that “word” names, like Primrose, Magnolia, Briar, Serenity, Dawn, and Emerald are all going to be popular this year.

Leni

Names that could be nicknames but are used as a given name are super cute and popular for baby girl names. Brynn at Nameberry thinks that Leni will be one of those very popular name choices for 2024. “I see Leni on what feels like every expecting parent’s list, either as a full name or as a nickname for Eleanor, Lennon, Elena, etc,” she writes. “And sounding like the boyish nickname Lenny is a plus — just look at the recent success of Frankie, Charlie, and Stevie as girls’ names.”

We hope we’ve given you a bit of inspiration to help you pick the perfect moniker for your little girl!

Unisex baby names are gaining in popularity as parents realize they have more options than ever when it comes to naming their baby. Some parents choose a unisex baby name because they love the name regardless of the gender of their baby, while others choose a unisex name because they are looking to distance themselves from those traditional "boy" or "girl" naming conventions.
Why we love unisex names

Although gender reveals are still incredibly popular, choosing a unisex baby name allows parents to give their baby a name they love, regardless of their sex. Many unisex baby names fall into the less traditional category, which is perfect for parents looking for something a little more unique for their child. If you're making a list of potential names for your baby, here are our favorite unisex baby names for consideration.
Atlas
Atlas is the ideal name for any parent who wants their child to travel the world! This name of Greek origin has swiftly begun to climb the ranks of popularity in the U.S. since 2015. Celebrities like Edward Norton and Shay Mitchell have used this unisex name for their children.
Blair
Although Blair originated as a Scottish surname, it has grown popular as a unisex name in North America.
Chase
This name was more popular among boy names, but now Chase is often used by parents looking for a cool, unique unisex name for their daughters. Chase is giving us those athletic vibes.
Dylan
Like Chase, Dylan was once primarily used as a boy name but has grown in popularity in recent years as a common choice for girls. The Welsh name means "son of the sea," but we can all agree that this is the perfect unisex name for any water baby.
Kai
Kai, often seen as a form of Kaia, is a name of Hawaiian origin dominating unisex name charts. It's simplistic but far from basic and is a beautiful choice for any parent looking for a dreamy unisex name.
Mackenzie
Mackenzie is another name of Scottish origin that has been adopted from the surname and is almost equally popular as a name for both boys and girls.
Paris
Paris is known as the City of Love, making it the perfect name for your baby. Thanks to public figures like Paris Hilton, it may be known more commonly as a girl's name, but it is commonly used for both genders.
Morgan
Morgan is one of the most traditional unisex names, making it great for parents who want a combination of the two. You could probably name as many girls as you could boys Morgan, making it a very popular unisex baby name choice.

Finding out you're pregnant is an exciting time, but also one that comes with lots of decisions. For many, that's deciding whether to use a midwife or a doula throughout the pregnancy and labor. Individuals who are hoping for a drug-free delivery often prefer the services of a midwife or a doula; however, many don't know the differences between the two. While both these professions aid those through the labor process, their roles are actually quite different. Keep reading to decipher this: doula vs. midwife.
What's a midwife?

One of the biggest differences between midwives and doulas is that midwives are certified healthcare providers trained in obstetric and gynecological services. According to The Cleveland Clinic, midwives are "experts in uncomplicated OB/GYN care." Because midwives tend to prefer a more natural, unmedicated, and holistic approach to childbirth they are often favored by those looking for that in their childbirth experience.
