How Will Brüno (the Movie) Affect Bruno (the Name)?

In 2006, Sacha Baron Cohen introduced the world to Borat — a journalist from Kazakhstan who did shockingly offensive things while traveling the U.S. in search of Pamela Anderson.

This Friday, he’ll be introducing the world to Brüno — a journalist from Austria who does shockingly offensive things while traveling the U.S. in search of celebrity.

The most interesting difference between these two characters? Their names.

The name Borat has never been a common here (or anywhere, I believe). So the character Borat wasn’t going to be making his name any less popular.

But the name Bruno has something to lose. Every year, babies born in the U.S. and many other countries worldwide are named Bruno. If international audiences are as captivated (and offended) by Brüno as they were by Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, the name Bruno may suffer (globally!) as a result.

What kind of impact do you think the movie Brüno will have on the name Bruno?

More specifically: Bruno was the 801st most popular baby name in the U.S. in 2008. How do you think it will fare in 2009?
