How Many Babies Were Named After Aeon Flux?

Aeon Flux

I’m on a cartoon kick now. I’ve only posted about Pebbles and Cheetara so far, but there are indeed other cartoon-inspired baby names out there. And Aeon is one of them.

The name Aeon [pron. EE-on] was invented for the character Æon Flux, who was first featured on MTV’s Liquid Television in 1991. Æon Flux became a stand-alone show in 1995. That’s when we first start seeing the name on the Social Security Administration’s official baby name list:

  • 1999: 6 baby girls named Aeon
  • 1998: unlisted
  • 1997: 5 baby boys named Aeon
  • 1996: 7 baby girls named Aeon
  • 1995: 6 baby boys named Aeon [debut]
  • 1994: unlisted

Notice that both boys and girls were named Aeon. Interesting, isn’t it? The reason may be that the character, while female, wasn’t exactly feminine. She was an assassin who “dressed like a dominatrix” and “always managed to rack up an astonishingly high body count,” according to MTV’s description of the series. The show itself was dark, gritty, violent, sexual…definitely not something you’d see in the Saturday morning line-up.

The name Aeon didn’t make the SSA’s list again until 2006, after the release of the not-very-well-received live-action Æon Flux movie in late 2005.

  • 2006 – 11 baby girls & 6 baby boys named Aeon
  • 2007 – 5 baby boys named Aeon
  • 2008 – 6 baby girls & 8 baby boys named Aeon
  • 2009 – 7 baby girls named Aeon

Do you think we’ll see more baby Aeons on the 2010 list?
