One of the most exciting (and sometimes daunting) tasks as a parent is naming our children!

There are so many factors that can go into the process. Sometimes it's a tribute to someone we love and admire, other times it's about the symbolic nature of a name, and sometimes we just love the way one sounds.

Regardless, names are beautiful and can play a huge role in the character building of a child as it grows.

We chose both of our baby's names with much consideration and thought. First, we named our daughter Kensington Kelly because we adored the name Kensington and its tie to a city we love (London). Secondly, we gave her the middle name Kelly as a tribute to my amazing mother Kelly.

Sean Jr. was named after my husband and best friend. We felt that it would be a beautiful tie that would keep them even closer as the years progress.

We're already well into 2021, and I thought it would be fun to see which baby names are currently trending in the United States. Luckily, Babycenter keeps tabs on which names are most popular, and I thought you may enjoy seeing the top 25.
