40 Chic Baby Names That Prove Swedes Do it Better

It's no secret that Scandinavian style is having a moment. From the sheepskin hide on your bedroom floor, to that dark rye bread you had for lunch, to minimalist clothing in your IKEA closet: Everything that's popular in Sweden, Denmark, and Norway seems to reach out shores. 

What you may not have noticed is that Swedish baby names are roaringly popular at the moment, too. From Agnes to Axel to Elsa, names that are topping the charts in Sweden tend toward the traditional and slightly quirky trends that have been on the upswing themselves in recent years. Many of them are traditionally Swedish; others are Anglo-Saxon monikers that Swedes have embraced. 

If their ability to predict design, fashion, and food trends are any indication, these names will be huge in 2017. Take a look at the top boy’s and girl’s names that Swedish mums adore, according to Hej Sweden.
