Among the naming trends are:

• Economical Names - Shorter, monosyllabic names like Joe, Hal and Max.
• Retro Names - Think of traditional "grandmother/father" names and you get idea: Florence, Josephine, Walter and Raymond.
• The L Word - Names with two L sounds: Lola, Delilah and Lulu
• The X Factor - Possibly brought on by the Jolie-Pitt clan, names with the letter X will be in fashion: Dexter, Rex, Felix
