I don’t know much about Nuestra Belleza Mexico, but I can tell you that the Mexican beauty pageant/TV show has had a small effect on the U.S. baby names.

A few of the interesting Nuestra Belleza Mexico names that did not pop up on the U.S. charts are Borinquen, Irantzu and Suslim.
It doesn’t end there, though!
The Mexican show inspired a U.S. version, Nuestra Belleza Latina. It’s much newer — season 6 just ended — but so far it’s had a much bigger impact on U.S. baby names.
Name debuts that can be attributed to Nuestra Belleza Latina include…
- Madelis, which debuted in 2007 with 30 baby girls. Inspired by 2007 contestant Madelis Soto.
