Puerto Rican TV show Objectivo Fama, which ran for 6 seasons, was a singing contest not unlike American Idol.
I’ve found a bunch of baby names that were inspired by Objectivo Fama on the SSA’s baby name list. Por ejemplo…
Season 1 (2004)
- Janayra, from contestant Janayra Reyes. The baby name Janayra debuted on the SSA’s list in 2004 with 12 baby girls.
- Kany, from contestant Kany Garcia. She was disqualified from season 1 (due to a car accident) but won “Best New Artist” at the Latin Grammys in 2008. The baby name Kany debuted in 2008 with 7 baby girls.
Season 3 (2006)
- Elionaid, from contestant Elionaid Iñiguez. The baby name Elionaid debuted in 2006 with 11 baby boys.
- Jenilca, from contestant Jenilca Giusti. The baby name Janilca debuted in 2006 with 7 baby girls.
Season 4 (2007)
- Aidsa, from contestant Aidsa Rodríguez. The baby name Aidsa debuted in 2007 in 30 baby girls.
Season 5 (2008)
- Yaindhi, from contestant Yaindhi Alvarez. The baby name Yaindhi debuted in 2008 with 29 baby girls.

Other names, such as Jayro, were already on the list but given a boost thanks to Objectivo Fama.
