Will “In My Feelings” Kick Off the Name Kiki?

The trendiest song of the summer? Definitely Drake’s “In My Feelngs” — thanks to the viral dance challenge created by comedian Shiggy (pictured above).

And that’s not just my opinion: Billboard has officially ranked “In My Feelings” #1 on the 2018 “Songs of the Summer” chart.

The dance begins on the lines: “Kiki, do you love me? Are you riding? / Say you’ll never ever leave from beside me.”

(The video should start at “Kiki,” but if you want to watch Phylicia Rashad‘s hilarious cameo, rewind to the very beginning.)

So now here’s my question: Will this Kiki-centric song-and-dance craze increase the usage of the baby name Kiki this year? How about the name Keke? (I’m seeing it spelled both ways on social media.)

In 2017, “Kiki” was given to a dozen baby girls and “Keke” to fewer than five. What will the numbers be in 2018?
