A little more than a week ago, 8-year-old Lacey Holsworth — known for her friendship with Michigan State University basketball player Adreian Payne — succumbed to the cancer she’d been battling for several years.
I don’t know much about Lacey, but I’ve seen/heard her name in the news a lot lately. This makes me wonder: Will this sad event increase the popularity of the baby name Lacey in 2014?
Etan is an interesting case because much of the increase can be traced back to New York state specifically. If there’s an uptick in the number of Laceys born in 2014, do you think most of those Laceys will be from Michigan?
The name Lacey was most popular during the early 1980s, thanks to the popular TV series Cagney & Lacey. (Cagney debuted on the charts in 1982.)
What are your thoughts on this?
