From Alessia to Zayn, Popular Baby Names on the Rise!

3 babies sitting togetherEvery year, we’re the authority on the most popular baby names from the prior year based on requests for Social Security numbers for newborns. It’s fun to see how America’s trends and culture have diversified and our choices have broadened. You can visit our baby names page to see the top names from 2016 and see where your or your child’s name ranks!

Our list shows how pop culture affects naming trends year to year. In 2016, the biggest jump in popularity in the top 1,000 were Kehlani and Kylo. Kehlani rose 2,487 spots on the girls’ side to number 872, from number 3,359 in 2015. We can attribute this to Kehlani Parrish, a 2016 Grammy nominee also known for collaborating with Zayn Malik, the former One Direction star and current solo artist. The name Zayn also made the boys fastest riser list.

The force was strong for Kylo in 2016 as he soared 2,368 spots for the boys, from number 3,269 in 2015 to number 901. Kylo Ren was a major character in the 2015 film “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Perhaps Kylo can continue to harness the force and climb even higher in the coming years.

Some other notable names in the top 10 biggest increase category include Benicio and Fox for boys. The force could be strong for Benicio too, as Benicio Del Toro is rumored to be playing a character in the upcoming film “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” As for Fox, did anyone ever figure out what the fox said?

Saoirse, Ophelia, and Alessia for girls also jumped in popularity. Could Saoirse Ronan, the popular actor and Academy Award nominee, have anything to do with the popularity increase? For Ophelia, is it because of Shakespeare or The Lumineers? Singer/songwriter Alessia Cara’s three recent top 10 Billboard songs certainly affected her name’s rise in the charts.

  1. Sad!! Why do parents feel the need to saddle a child with such an unusual name (particularly in light of the “political” leanings of some of the Hollywierd types)? Fortunately, they won’t be the only Bernecio or Zayn in their class. If you want a “different” name for your child, look elsewhere for inspiration.

    We continue to actively evaluate our portfolio to
    explore strategic alternatives including internal investments, strategic partnerships, acquisitions, and divestitures.

    Sexy Bikini Swimsuit I asked for an analysis of the CATH ETF.
    The results convinced me that the recommendations from Friedrich Global Research were much better than the CATH fund.
    I would recommend this service to anyone who is willing to study what these folks
    are doing with stock analysis. That is in addition to other human anatomy information that you’ll find in this app.
    The only issue that we have with this app is that it requires
    an Epocrates account. It’s not a big deal but it would have been better if the app did not
    require the Epocrates account. Sexy Bikini Swimsuit

    That ain right. But then the racist side of my brain was like,
    well black people commit a lot of crime, but then the rational side of my
    brain said, these cops can just treat these americans like this even if they do have a statistically higher chance of being a felon, or having committed a crime.

    As compensation, I say her generation stats aren too impressive, with her Arts gain totaling a little below the average for Casters, even with her territory creation taken into account.
    Add on the fact her NP gain is in the dumps to compensate for her high hit Arts,
    and her Extra and Quick won do much better. Sexy Bikini Swimsuit

    There were some odd things said. Some teams (or players) also
    seem to get a lot of hype from the casters while other teams just get a small mention, if at all.

    bikini swimsuit The problem with any sort of pharmaceutical is that it impossible to control how the body processes them.
    This is why side effects are a thing. You can create
    a drug that interacts with your body in a certain (preferably good) way, but it will always interact with another
    part of the body in a different way. If you are overweight you should maintain a healthy diet
    and exercise to get rid of the extra fat weight. If you have weak
    muscles your should do the same thing to firm up.
    You should also drink lots of water. bikini swimsuit

    cheap bikinis On that SA January 13th publication day of my article LVS was trading at $55.

    Dialog creates the power management chip for Apple.
    Dialog employs approximately 1300 engineers to produce
    this technology. Apple represents 75% of Dialog’s total revenue very similar to Cirrus.

    While the Series 2 may have been a bright spot in the December quarter,
    it’s still a small part of the bigger Apple picture.
    Apple apparently factored in all these supply issues when it came up with its
    relatively modest guidance for fiscal 2017 Q1: revenue of $76 78 billion. In the table below, I summarize my
    model estimates for the quarter..

    Monokinis swimwear “Safety is key,” Noren says.
    “People need to make sure they are physically able for the level of their team and positions they are trying to play. It does take some athletic ability, so to prevent injury players need to know their limitations, warm up before the game and focus on flexibility.”.
    You still be far less likely to be stopped by the police,
    or receive a harsh sentence, or be put to
    death. Being called a cracker doesn dredge up memories
    of a time when your people were enslaved by theirs, or
    when you were legally segregated, or beaten on the streets for insisting that
    you deserve equal rights. When you turn on the tv you can expect to see plenty of white people on just about
    every channel who are never defined by their whiteness.

    one piece swimsuits There no mass appeal to Metal Gear Online anymore.
    Realistically, the biggest reason MGO2 did as well as it did was because at the time, there was
    very little competition on the PS3 and because MGO2 launched with MGS4 on day one.
    These days, there are plenty of far more engaging multiplayer games
    and Konami has proven time and time again that they
    aren willing to invest as consistent an amount of continuous post launch support in their products the way games from companies
    like Rockstar, Blizzard and so on are.. one piece swimsuits

    Women’s Swimwear This is pretty much spot
    on. I toured Hobbiton earlier this year, and while the village is almost perfectly idyllic,
    every single “house” is a facade. Some of the doors don even open. Curly
    hair can be really tedious to care for so it’s important to stick to a good routine and only use products that will clean your hair but also allow it to absorb moisture quicker
    so it isn’t frizzy.Another cheaper brand is shea moisture.
    Although the best sure fire way to know if something is ok to use is
    learning what ingredients to avoid, and knowing what might be
    acceptable based on your hair type. People with wavier or more oily hair can probably
    use water soluble sulfates while someone who’s scalp is dryer and has kinky
    curls I’ll probably stay away from even that.Carols daughter is another popular brand although I’ve
    heard that not all of their products are completely sulfate free.Even if your
    hair is not curly it still pays to take care of it and help it stay healthy by retaining more
    moisture. Women’s Swimwear

    glaring omission is touch screen functionality.

    It just looks and feels like it should have a touch screen. The

    cheap swimwear As an Obama loving transgender woman I find myself
    very much on the side of the bakers, using the example of the upcoming Supreme Court case.
    In the hypothetical scenario that bakers are found to be in the wrong, this could be horrible for LGBTQ identifying people.

    For instance, lets pretend that I actually a good baker, so much so that I open my own bakery.
    Physically, I been told by my boyfriend that I haven gained hundreds of pounds.
    I just know I look noticeably bigger with my height and frame and I
    have body dysmorphia and used to struggle with anorexia, so there no words
    to describe how I feel on an everyday basis dealing with this.
    There a huge narrative associating extreme “self control” around food with moral goodness and purity, so accepting that binge
    eating disorder is itself a mental health issue and not just a moral failing is difficult to accept for many people.It
    hard to even study because patients have so much trouble talking
    about it, there so much shame around admitting to overconsumption of food cheap swimwear.
