Maybe it's just be being jealous because I have a pretty plain name, but this seems dumb.
BabyCenter just released the Top Baby Names for 2012 and characters from Fifty Shades Of Grey are up in the top part of this list.
The name "Grey", after Christian Grey, jumped 18% for boys while the female lead in the book, Anastasia, jumped 10% for girls names. The short version, Ana, jumped 15%. I can't WAIT for those kids to ask how they got their names.
Here are the Top 10 for each gender:
The top name overall for girls in 2012 was Sophia. The rest of the top 10 are: Emma, Olivia, Isabella, Ava, Lily, Zoe, Chloe, Mia, and Madison.
The top name overall for boys was Aiden. The rest of the top 10 are: Jackson, Ethan, Liam, Mason, Noah, Lucas, Jacob, Jayden, and Jack.
