Are you expecting a baby girl? If so, you might be grappling with naming your little bundle of joy — you want something unique but not weird, popular but not TOO popular, and a name that won't seem terrible in 20 or 30 years (and beyond). It's tricky.

It's especially challenging since name trends are always changing. Names that were popular when we were in school have plummeted (do we really need more Jennifers, anyway?) and right now old-fashioned names are totally en vogue. Go figure.

But to help you on your search, we're getting in front of the trends by predicting baby names that are on the fringes of popularity and will likely keep rising in 2018. Check out these up-and-coming names and your baby girl will certainly be ahead of the curve.
