Hunger Games Baby Names

‘Twilight’ names have topped list for years, but a new report says soon enough you’ll see way more babies straight from the OTHER book-inspired mega movie, ‘The Hunger Games’!

We reported that Twilight-inspired baby names like Bella and Jacob took top spots in 2012, but you’ll be seeing way more Kats and Catos soon at a playground near you!

iVillage.com reports that names from The Hunger Games have gotten a huge bump based on data collected by Social Security Administration’s list of top baby names.

Names like Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Primrose, Rue, and Cato are all totally trending.

They are “cool and unusual — two key factors for many moms and dads with baby names on the brain” says the report.

Do you think those names make cute baby names, HollyMoms?
