Baby name trends often reflect what’s going on in pop culture, so it’s no great surprise that Bridgerton-themed names are being tipped for popularity.

The acclaimed period drama is already sparking a Regencycore fashion trend. Now it’s set to fuel a rise in Regency-style baby names, according to the website Bella Baby.

Some of these names have a classical quality – for example, Cressida, which is derived from a Greek word meaning gold, and Uriana, which means “the unknown” in the same language.

Other Regency-themed baby names such as Kitty, Bridget and Quinn simply sound adorable. Meanwhile, the names Simon and Daphne make the list because they’re attached to standout characters from the hit Netflix series.

And with Bridgerton already renewed for a second season, the Regency baby name trend could well be built to last.
