And while there are many things to be thankful for this year, for some lucky couples, 2018 might just be the first time they get to call themselves mama or dada.

Mom and dad likely want something that's current or, better yet, they want a name that is set to dominate in the year to come! After all it's a new year, a new journey -- why not start it off with a completely fresh and fun name for the little guy?
