TOP eco-friendly baby names in 2024

As the calendar flips to 2024, the freshest wave of baby name trends arrives - yet this one has an eco-twist!

New research from waste management company BusinessWaste.co.uk has unearthed the ‘greenest’ names in 2024. They used both internal company data and the latest trending names from BabyCenter to find out the most popular baby names for little ones who are most likely to become eco-warriors and enjoy an environmentally friendly life.

David heads up the pack with a significant lead in sustainable practices, according to the latest data. Not only is it still a popular name in 2024 after trending for a few years, but it’s also the name that gets the most enquiries into recycling at BusinessWaste.co.uk.

On the girls’ side, the name most interested in sustainability with the most queries around recycling is by far Emma, which is also the 7th top trending name in the UK in 2024 according to BabyCenter.

Here are the TOP 10 trending baby names in 2024 that are most likely to care for the environment and lead a sustainable life:

Adam and Maria, both biblically rooted, now sprout new meaning in the green baby name trend. These names are growing in popularity among families who cherish the earth. Zoe, a name with a zest for life and currently in favour, is fast becoming synonymous with a desire to live sustainably.
