Selecting the ideal name for your baby is no easy task, especially when you often have to take into account the thoughts and opinions of your partner, parents and in-laws.
And then you have all the lists and celebrity baby names to go through as well. Some parents have even admitted to being reduced to tears daily after choosing the 'wrong' name for their child.
Fear not, because Artificial Intelligence may actually be able to lend a helping hand to parents-to-be struggling to settle on a moniker for their child.
The use of AI has exploded in recent months, with AI songs and baby pictures of celebrities going viral. Now parents can have a look at baby name trends in the 2030s thanks to AI and the results are incredible.
Ginger Ray asked AI to predict the future in-demand baby names which will rise in popularity over the next 10 years in the UK along with the themes that have influenced them.
After analysing 10 years of ONS baby name data using ChatGPT, Ginger Ray asked AI to spot the trends in naming conventions to predict the names that could become big in 2033.
Names predicted to become popular are:
There are some very unique names to choose from there!
Baby names including Oliviana and Zephyr are predicted to grow in popularity in the UK over the next decade, the new research revealed.
Classic names such as Olivia and Amelia will remain popular, but they will also undergo a modern makeover, with variations like Oliviana and Ameliea predicted to gain prominence.
Interestingly, Willard is actually Will Smith's full first name and he was named after his dad, Willard Carroll Smith Sr., a US Air Force veteran and refrigeration engineer.
But if naming your child after The Fresh Prince himself doesn't float your boat, you could always opt for one of the more futuristic names. Names like Nova, Orion, Zephyr, and Lunastra could capture the imagination of parents and they all sound rather space-themed.
Nature-inspired names will become increasingly popular and we can all expect names like Willow, River, Aurora, and Jasper to grace many birth certificates.
Names from other cultures and languages like Aria, Mateo, Luna, or Kai could become more popular in Britain while gender-neutral monikers like Harper, Quinn, Riley, and Charlie will continue to rise in popularity for all genders.
And since we're all suckers for nostalgia, vintage names from the mid-20th century will make a comeback, evoking nostalgia and charm. Expect your future kids to have friends with names like Evelyn, Arthur, Beatrice, and Theodore.
We're literally spoilt for choice!
