Here are three names that might see increased usage in 2014, thanks to popular culture…
I’ve been hearing a lot about Boyhood (2014) recently. The movie, which took 12 years to film, stars Ellar Coltrane as a boy named Mason. The baby name Mason has become quite popular within the last 12 years, but Ellar remains entirely off the radar. Is that about to change?
Two of the biggest storms to hit the state of Hawaii, Iniki and Iselle, both happen to start with the letter I. We know Iniki influenced the baby name charts back in the early 1990s, but we’ll have to wait and see about Iselle. What do you think — will we see more babies named Iselle in 2014?
(Ignacio, Isis, Irwin, Ileana and Ivo are the I-names on reserve for future storms in the area.)
Never overlook reality TV when it comes to baby names. A relatively new series called Treehouse Masters includes a cast member/carpenter named Seanix (pronounced SHAWN-icks). If the name Carmindy can last on the charts for 6 years, I think Seanix certainly stands a chance. What do you think?
