Miley Cyrus, Adele & 'The Hunger Games' — 2012's Most Popular Baby Names

Tue, April 10, 2012 5:20pm EDT by 31 Comments

‘The Hunger Games’ isn’t just making an impact at the box office: Rue, Cato & more characters made the top baby names of 2012!

NameBerry.com has released its official list of predictions for the hottest boy and girl names in 2012, and some of them might be surprising — yet totally familiar. 

Here are their top name picks:

Rue The Hunger Games influenced this top name. It is originated from the series, Rue is a young girl who meets a tragic end.

Emmett — Thanks to Twilight‘s Emmett Cullen, this name is sure to be popular.

Weston, Wesley, West —  All these versions of West are great, but Weston is the name of The Office’s Jenna Fischer son.

Ivy – Superstars Beyonce and Jay-Z trademarked this name for daughter, Blue Ivy, but this name is sure to rise to the top.

Adele — The Grammy-winner Adele may have something to do with this one!

Grayson, Gray –  ABC’s new television series, Revenge, focuses on a powerful family, The Grayson’s.

Aria – This is the name of Lucy Hale‘s character on Pretty Little Liars

Cyrus — Miley Cyrus‘ fame and good looks definitely have some pull on this unisex name!

Estelle – The royal couple of Sweden named their daughter Estelle 

Cato — Once again, The Hunger Games influence! The villain in the series should not matter thanks to the name’s uniqueness!

Blythe – The name could have potential and it’s identified with actress Blythe Danner, the mother of Gwyneth Paltrow.

HollyMoms, What do you think of the hot baby names?

of course like your web-site but you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the reality then again I will surely come back again.

You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation however I find this topic to be actually one thing which I feel I would never understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely wide for me. I’m having a look forward for your subsequent publish, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!

If it’s a girl, I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY want to name her Americus! I just think it is a very strong and beautiful name. Can somebody think of middle names for Americus?

Hi Jazzie!! I came up with a mixture of those two names, and what about Rosemé? (Rose-May) I think it’s pretty, but if you don’t like it, I can try to think of something else.

I’m 16, and I’m prego! I made mistakes and i can’t fix them! I’m not ever gonna have an abortion, because that would make me a murder, and I would be killing my own child! NEVA EVA!! I’m keeping my baby, and no matter what, me and “daddy” are gonna do whatever it takes to raise our daughter, the right way. But anyway, so like I need some names from the movie twilight, cuz I am a fan of it. Please don’t mention Renesmee, because I will never torture my child naming her that! I like Rosalie, and Esme. Those are the top two twilight names! If anyone comes up with a mixture of those two names, please tell me!! Just tell me in your comment! Thanks!!

Hi!! My cousin is expecting a little one, but not for awhile! She just found out like a week or so ago! But, she’s a very unique girl, and always has unique hairstyles. Can anybody come up with VERY unique names for her baby? Boys and girls names! Oh and if it helps, her name is Amanda, and the daddy’s name is Adam!! Thanks!!*>.<*

Hi everybody!! Me and my boyfriend are having a baby due on July 23rd, and it’s a lil pretty baby girl. I wanted a boy, but that’s just how it goes!! But, I cannot wait to shop with her!! So, me and Zak,( my boyfriend) saw the hunger games the other day, and katniss’s little sisters name Primrose is so pretty!! And my bestie is named mason so we asked her if we could name out baby’s middle name after her. She said yes, so out little angel will be named PrimRose Masyn, cuz we don’t like mason with an o. We like it better with a y. PrimRose Masyn!!!!!**
