Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Pamela shared 12 names, for boys and girls, which are in right now, including Sophie, River and James – for girls.
She said: “Elite parents in urban areas lean toward very fashion-forward and sophisticated names.
“They are attracted to quirky, not-so-easy-to-like names that are more difficult to embrace.”
She shared her list of current ‘elite’ baby names, which include Sam, Jack, Lily, Charlotte and Matilda.

While for the boys Jack was in 10th place, while Sam, or Samuel, came in 63rd place.

Pamela used Penelope as an example of a name which has slipped in popularity after becoming widely used.
Kourtney Kardashian opted for the ‘retro’ name for her daughter when she was born in 2012, and that sealed its fate.
Pamela revealed: “Now Penelope feels too popular, too common — and we’re not hearing much about it anymore.”
