For instance, you're going to want to pick something that both you and your partner (if you have one) can agree on, something that will stand the test of time and that the little one won't be embarrassed to tell people when they introduce themselves.

If you're currently struggling with picking a name for your unborn child, or are going to be thinking about it soon, here's a little something that might help.

Baby name website, Nameberry have just released their predictions for the top baby names of 2020.

In order to create the top 20, the team at Nameberry work out which names in their database have seen the biggest increase in interest over the last year.

And it seems that parents are really loving old fashioned names like Pearl, which was a top 100 name from 1880 through the mid-1920s, when it started a long decline. But it's recently been making a big comeback and looks set to get more popular.

Unsurprisingly, other names to make the cut take inspiration from pop culture events or celebrities, like Reese (Reese Witherspoon) and Billie (Billie Eilish).

Nameberry says: "Our top baby names are a radical departure from the official national list, which suffers from a considerable time lag. We won't know which names were really used the most often for babies in 2020 until May of 2021.
