I love compiling the top baby names of the year, because it’s exciting to discover the new and more unique baby names that are beyond the Top 100. But if we check out the names ranked below the top 100, we often find names that have just recently hit the public consciousness or pop culture. Names that are further down the list are usually more unique names, wild names, or recent celebrity baby names. They give you a sneek peak into the naming trends of 2021 and beyond.

Here are some really cool unique baby names that ranked in the top 500 for 2020, and will be players for 2021 and beyond. What do you think? Are your favorite names on the list?
