It’s not question parents are getting more and more creative when it comes to naming their little ones. Baby name website Nameberry shows us just how creative parents are getting with their 28 names that are gaining popularity on the Huffington Post. Some of them might surprise you.

Nameberry is calling Persephone “the new Penelope” of girl’s names. Parents are also gravitating toward Azalea and Valentina for girls. Inspired by the First Family, parents are also opting for Sasha (though this name is unisex in Russia, it’s been getting more popular just for the girls).

When it comes to boys, moms and dads are digging up old classics from the Bible and history. More little boys are getting the name Asa, a Biblical king, and Blaise, a Catholic saint. Parents are also picking Reed as a traditional but slightly unusual name. And thanks to the Jolie-Pitt family, there may be a few boys named Knox in your baby’s kindergarten class.

What are your favorite baby names?
