Trending Baby Names of 2022

Are you still trying to find the perfect name for your new baby? I looked at 25 of the newborns I photographed last year to look for some baby names that may be trending and some that may be more unique. I also compared those names to see how they compared to the national trends in popularity. Some of these names are more popular than others – and all of them are super cute!
