Today is Britney Spears’s birthday. (Happy 30th, B!) And you know what happens every year when Brit’s birthday rolls around: the Pop Culture Baby Name Game!
What’s the game all about? Well, we try to predict which pop culture-inspired baby names will appear on the SSA’s official baby name list for the very first time in 2011.
Think back to all the big pop culture events of 2011 (and late 2010). Sports, television, politics, technology, movies, music, books, video games, and so forth. What brand-new baby names do you think they inspired in 2011?

Know what today is? It’s Britney Spears’ birthday! (Come on, you didn’t already know that?)
So today is the perfect day to start playing the Pop Culture Baby Name Game.
What’s that? It’s a game in which we try to predict which pop culture-inspired baby names will appear on the SSA’s official baby name list for the first time in 2010.

Think back to notable occurrences of 2010 and late 2009. Think about movies, music, books, video games, sports, politics, products, and whatever else made headlines and/or caught your attention. What brand-new baby names might these things have inspired?
Here are some possibilities I’ve already blogged about:
Another that has since come to mind is Etsy, which looks and sounds like Betsy with the B chopped off.
What other potential names can you think of? (Remember–oddball names like Chachi and Darth have made the SSA’s list in years past, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box on this!)
