Olivia? Yeah, you predicted that name would be huge long before it was even a presence on the top 100 charts. Now you’re due to give birth to the next trendy moniker and could use a leg up on what’s destined to be hot. So, without further ado, meet the class of 2019.

The royal wedding of the decade (sorry, Will and Kate) took place this past May. You can bet loads of royal-loving parents will still have the Duchess of Sussex on the brain in 2019.

Arthur

While we’re on the subject of the royals, this is Prince Louis’s middle name, but it was also chosen by Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa for her first-born son.

Cora

This name that has been steadily climbing the charts since 2013, per BabyCenter. (And for what it’s worth, Pantone just named “Coral” the color of the year.)

Midge

Yep, old-lady baby names—including this name popularized by The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel—are still all the rage. Consider it 2019’s answer to Hazel.

Kale

As crazy as it sounds, health food baby names are totally on the rise, according to BabyCenter. Kale is number one on the list, specifically for girls, but don’t be surprised if you see more and more produce names too—everything from Kiwi to Basil.

Noah

Sure, it’s always been popular (ranked #2 for boys in 2017), but it’s actually indicative of a much larger trend: The rise of the four-letter baby name. (Think Ella, Liam, Ryan.) In 1990, no name in the top 10 was fewer than five letters, according to Quartz, but going into 2019, the two most popular names for boys and girls were clocking in at just four. (It’s called a “raindrop name,” according to Baby Wizard, and it references parents who smoothly pack two or more syllables into four or fewer letters.)

If it’s good enough for Chip and Joanna Gaines’s, then it’s good enough for us. (And it’s climbed 73 points in the rankings since last year, in case you were wondering.)

Oaklynn

Um, this girls’ name jumped up a whopping 1,367 spots in rank since 2016, according to the Social Security Administration. We have a feeling it’s going to be a biggie in 2019.

Elsa

Frozen 2 hits theaters in 2019. So you better believe Elsa is going to be sailing up the charts (again). Sadly we’re still not seeing it for Olaf.
