'Billie' Predicted To Be One Of The Most Popular Baby Girl Names Of 2020 Thanks To Billie Eilish

It's hard to have lived through 2019 without hearing Billie Eilish's name every step of the way. Whether we're talking about her crazy cool unique fashion sense, her chart topping music, or the fact that she's the first (and only) person born after 2000 to hold a Billboard Number 1 song, 'Billie' is on everyone's lips.

And potentially everyone's birth certificate next year.

The site Nameberry predicts the most popular baby names of the upcoming years.

As they explain on their website, "We predict 2020’s top baby names by calculating which names saw the biggest increases in interest from Nameberry readers so far this year compared with last year."

They listed their predictions for the top ten most popular baby girl names of 2020 based on that data.

Rounding out the list at number 10 is the unique "Billie", of which they write, "Teen singing sensation Billie Eilish has done for this name what Billie Holiday could not: Made it a modern star."

It's not unheard of — once upon a time, Billie was a very popular name for girls.

"Billie hit its high point in the US charts in 1929 and 1930, when it was in the Top 100, which according to the Hundred Year Rule makes it destined for widespread popularity again in the next decade."

Would you name your daughter Billie?

I think I would! It's stylish and modern and I think the "ie" ending is cute and feminine.

Will 2020 be the rise of the Billies? Only time will tell.
