These Were the Most Popular Babies of 2019
As 2020 approaches, Google is taking a look back at 2019, and they've rounded up the babies that people were most intrigued by this year.
The holiday season also happens to be a time to look back on the year that was, and Google has released their Year in Search 2019 report, featuring roundups of the top trends of the year in a slew of categories from the top overall searches (Disney Plus snagged the #1 slot) to the most popular movies (Avengers: Endgame came in at #1). But the category we're loving the most is obviously the top 10 trending babies of 2019. These were the little ones—born to celebs and born into pop culture—who captured our imaginations this year.

1. Baby Yoda
And making it to the top of the baby list was a fictional Star Wars character that might not even be a baby—or Yoda, for that matter. It's proof that Star Wars fans really can't get enough of Disney+'s series The Mandalorian, which features what appears to be a pint-sized version of the one of the most famous characters in the entire franchise: Baby Yoda aka "The Child."
