( – While there are many baby names that continue to grow more popular over the years there are also several names that are becoming significantly less common, as reported by Fox News.

At BabyCenter, which has its headquarters in San Francisco, California, experts on baby names have been monitoring which names have been on the decline and are no longer as popular with new parents.

According to their research, they found more than 40 names which might not be as common in the upcoming year.

BabyCenter’s baby name trends specialist Rebekah Wahlberg organized the data and made a division of specific categories. She revealed in the research that in the early 2000s, there had been a rise in names that ended with the sound “aden.” However, those names have since decreased in popularity.

From 2022 to 2023, the name Aidan dropped by 93 spots while Raiden fell by 147 spots when compared to its original accent. Jaiden had a greater drop with a 151-spot decrease. While these sorts of names used to be popular with new parents, they have significantly dropped in popularity recently.

Walkhberg also noted that other names for girls that had once been popular included Reagan, Sawyer, McKenzie, and Oakley. Mckenzie specifically is one of the names that has dropped the most quickly, having fallen by 184 spots on the list of girl baby names.

Reid has also dropped significantly, having lost 143 spots.

Other names that had been popular in the ‘80s and ‘90s including Angela, Diana, Amanda, Brooke, and Michelle are also dropping in popularity.
