Names from pop culture are soaring, as shown in the list of the top 100 baby names in 2014 on Nameberry. Thankfully, the list is based on pageviews, so children are not necessarily stuck with these unfortunate names.
Some other odd names for girls not pictured include James, Emmett, Quinn, Clementine, Finn, Imogen and Elodie. Finn, Quinn, Emmett and James also made it to the top 100 names for boys, as well as Bodhi and Soren (is Kierkegaard making a comeback, too?).
Lola also made the list for girls, so I guess enough time has passed since the 1970 song by the Kinks for someone to name their baby that. Let’s just hope she doesn’t talk like a man.
1. Elsa. I’m sure we all saw this coming. Can’t fans just let it go? I guess the popularity will just rage on. (RELATED: Let It Go! Stop Naming Babies After Pop Culture)
2. Khaleesi. With the popularity of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” it’s no surprise that parents want their daughters to be the mother of dragons.
3. Katniss. Again, no surprise. But if you do name your daughter Katniss, she better have some awesome archery skills.
4. Merida. Is archery a theme here? Your daughter better be brave if you name her Merida.
5. Esme. Seriously?! I thought the Twilight phase was over! At least Esme is a better character to name your daughter after than Bella.
6. Hazel. At least Hazel in “The Fault in our Stars” isn’t from a fantasy movie or show.
7. Matilda. Throwback Thursday name?
And for the guys:
8. Django. “Django Unchained” came out in 2012, but the name is gaining popularity now.
9. Archer. Let’s just hope any boys named Archer don’t turn out like their namesake.
