From Valentina and Mateo to Isabella and Liam, see the top ten boys and girls names!

As 2019 nears to an end, it’s always fun to reflect on some of the highlights that stood out. Among those are baby names! In case you’re wondering what the most popular Hispanic baby names of 2019 were, BabyCenter en Español shared the top ten boys and girls names of the year. For girls, there was a trend among nature-inspired names such as Luna, Florencia and Trinindad. As for boys, there was a preference for shorter versions of longer names such as Bastián (Sebastian) and Enzo (Lorenzo). Also in the list was Lucia - which  Ricky Martin  named his baby girl (above right) this year, and Santiago - just like  Eva Longoria ’s sweet little boy (above left).

 Prince Harry  and  Meghan Markle 's first child’s name,  Archie Harrison , takes after the trend with Archie being short for Archibald. The royal couple welcomed their son on May 6 and surprised  royal watchers with their choice of name as it’s uncommon  within the royal family. At the time, a source revealed that the parents “simply liked the names.” His middle name, Harrison, means “son of Harry,” which for obvious reasons, couldn’t be more perfect.


Another famous baby born in 2019 is  Shay Mitchell  and Matte Babel’s baby girl, who was born on October 20. The longtime couple chose the unique name Atlas, which makes total sense with the actress’ passion for travel. “It’s just the perfect name; from that day, we knew it was going to be Atlas,” Michelle told Vogue magazine. “People would ask us, ‘Do you have a name?’ But we were keeping it hidden. I’m sorry to everybody that I lied to!”
