Celia Muñoz, Founder and Creative Director at La Coqueta said, “Baby names are a very personal choice and so taking inspiration from the things you love actually makes a lot of sense - even if it is fashion or cars! It is interesting that names are being inspired by fashion when fashion is often the one inspired by other sources.”
“This data seems to show that many parents are moving away from more traditional names and opting for more unique and stand-out names,” she added.
