They may never overtake perennial faves like Michael and Jennifer, but these baby names have been making some serious moves up the charts thanks to their use in pop culture!
Our friends at Babble have put together a list of some of the catchiest names of 2012! So in case you need some ideas:
I bet you can guess where this name is getting popular from. The novel series "50 Shades of Grey" has sparked a rise in the baby names "Grey", "Gray" and "Grayson.
The 2012 winter Olympics has sparked a rise of the name London, which can be used for boy or girl. Also, with the princess being pregnant now I bet we we a big spike in London-inspired names too.
The long-awaited birth of the girl Kardashian/Disick and the reveal of her name has risen the notability of the name Penelope. It's an older name which was also quite popular in the 1940's.
I love the show "Game of Thrones" and they have some pretty awesome names including Arya which has become quite popular this year.
