Yesterday someone shared a link with me of the most popular baby names of 2014 (so far). It was interesting to see the trends in names and how movies and TV shows influence our choices. Being a HUGE fan of “Game of Thrones,” I was personally excited to see Khaleesi making it onto the list. I am not surprised to see Katniss from “The Hunger Games” or Elsa from the movie “Frozen” on the list as those are both wildly popular. Here is the list of the Top 10 most popular names so far of 2014 according to Nameberry:
If you are having a baby or know someone having a baby, did they choose a name from these lists? Or were you named after a famous celebrity or movie character? I was named Jennifer from the popular movie “Love Story” starring Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal. I know quite a few Jennifer’s my age who were named after this character as well.
Let us know how you feel about picking baby names based on movie and TV characters and what it means to you.
