2020-inspired baby names to honour the year

If you’ve conceived or welcomed a baby in 2020, you might want to give them a name that honours the strangeness of the year in which they came into existence.

To help you out, we’ve put together a big list of 2020-inspired baby names that will instantly let people in the future know that yes, your child was around for the year of coronavirus, lockdowns, and Brexit.

And if you don’t have a human baby, you can always use this list as inspo for the pet you adopted in lockdown.
