Life Imitating Art and Brits: Popular Baby Names of 2011

28 Jul

Nameberry.com has released their list of the Hottest Baby Names of 2011! To me, it looks like we might have an obsession with pop culture and the Brits! 

From The Frisky: The list is based on an analysis of the most searched names, particularly those which saw a strong and sudden increase over the last six months. This year, Nameberry says, the list was “driven by unexpected celebrities, rediscovered classics, and the year’s most compelling events.”

Pippa (sister of Kate Middleton)

Asher 

Elula (Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen gave their second daughter this name, which apparently comes from the Hebrew calendar. )

Everett

Hadley

Arlo

Mila (Mila Kunis is back on the A-list with blockbuster movies like “Black Swan” and “Friends with Benefits”)

Flynn (Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr gave their baby boy this name.)

Ada, Adele, Adeline, Adelaide (These old-fashioned names are back again, probably thanks to the popularity of British-born pop star – Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.”)

Archer

Luna (Oh, one of my favorite characters from Harry Potter: Luna Lovegood)
