— Vowel-beginning names continue to rule, with 40 percent of the hottest girls' names and over half the boys' names starting with A (still the leader), E, I, or O, in that order.

— Unisex names are hot, especially for girls, with RileyRowanFinleyTeaganPeytonSage, andEverly all making the girls' list. But we also see names that can cross the gender line on the boys' side:JaydenElliotLoganCharlie, and Rhys.

— Girl-boy pairs of names make the hot list, with Elise and EliasKai and KaiaJade and JaydenEvanand Everly all rising.

— Girls' names with the -el sound — Elise and Elsie but also Aveline and Annalise — keep gathering steam, as do boys' names that end in n, with newcomers AryanAugustineLucian, and Eamon joining such favorites as Aiden and Owen.
