These Bridgerton-Inspired Baby Names Are Tipped To Be Big

Baby name trends often reflect what's going on in pop culture, so it's no great surprise that Bridgerton-themed names are being tipped for popularity.
The acclaimed period drama is already sparking a Regencycore fashion trend. Now it's set to fuel a rise in Regency-style baby names, according to the website Bella Baby.
Some of these names have a classical quality – for example, Cressida, which is derived from a Greek word meaning gold, and Uriana, which means "the unknown" in the same language.
Others such as Simon, Daphne and Eloise are back in the spotlight because they're attached to characters from the hit Netflix series. Quinn makes the list because it's the surname of Julia Quinn, author of the original Bridgerton novels. Bridget appears too... for fairly obvious reasons.
