The most popular baby names of 2020 so far include Luna and Milo… but Cora has vanished from the list

DECIDING what to name your baby is the first (and arguably most important) decision you'll ever make as a parent – and if you opted for Luna or Milo, then you were way ahead of the trend.

According to American parenting website NameBerry, the two monikers are the most searched baby names of 2020 so far – but Cora has vanished completely from the list.

Despite being among the most popular girls names of 2019, Cora has been replaced with more traditional names such as Olivia, Eleanor and Eloise.

The website claims: "[Cora] is too reminiscent of coronavirus so its popularity is waning."

That said, astrological-inspired names have come back in a big way for 2020 – with both Luna and Aurora remaining in the top three.

However, the parenting site reckons that Luna is popular not only because of its mythological heritage (Luna being the Roman goddess of the moon) but because John Legend and Chrissy Teigen chose it for their daughter.

Meanwhile, Milo also has ancient roots as it was the name of a wrestling champion at the first Olympic Games.
