Baby name trends come and go, and aesthetic names for baby boys and girls are hugely popular right now. You may have even given your baby an aesthetic name without even realizing it. Although you may think this trend, popularized on social media apps like TikTok and Instagram, will be a short-lived one, giving your baby an aesthetic name simply means refusing to adhere to any conventional naming rules.

By definition, “aesthetic” means beautiful, stylish, artistic, and chic and parents are feeling more empowered than ever when choosing the perfect name for their little ones. They are no longer limited to “classic” or family names and can choose something unique, elegant, unexpected, or unusual if that’s a name they love. If you’ve been looking for some aesthetic girl, boy, and gender-neutral name inspiration, we’ve compiled a list of some options you’re sure to love.

  • Ever
  • River

Choosing a name for your little one is an important decision that takes a lot of consideration. Aesthetic names allow parents to channel the things they love the most to inspire the perfect baby name. Many parents no longer feel the need to choose something traditional or classic they may not feel connected to and are instead opting for these aesthetic names they love. Whatever name you choose we hope you find some inspiration from these suggestions.
