Baby names that start with the letter A have been on the rise for several years now - with choices such as Ava and Aiden high on the popularity list, Asher and Adelaide rising fast, and names such as Abel and Aurora poised to take off.
In our last blog about names that start with A, we pointed out all the reasons parents love them: Besides their high fashion status along with other vowel names, studies show that children whose first names begin with A might earn higher marks in school, get into better colleges, and even live longer.
In that 2010 post, we listed A baby names on the Most Popular list along with those that were becoming more stylish. But the appetite for A names is so healthy that parents are searching for ever-newer and fresher varieties. Nameberry’s behind-the-scenes popularity data shows a wave of unusual A names attracting interest from baby namers.
