US-based BabyCenter website reports Instagram-inspired names are on the rise!
“Lux is up 75 per cent in its list of most popular names for boys, while Ludwig is up 42 per cent, Amaro 26 per cent, Reyes up ten per cent, Hudson up four per cent and Kelvin up three per cent.
Why YES they are all names of Instagram filters.
For the girls, Juno leaped 30 percent in popularity. (The Juno filter, introduced in 2015, makes outdoor photos especially gorgeous.) Valencia, which gives pictures a soft, warm glow, rose 26 percent on our girls’ name list. Willow gained 13 percent.”
“This is the first time we’ve seen technology break through as a source of name inspiration,” Linda Murray, BabyCenter’s editor-in-chief, said in a release.
“Photo-sharing is a daily and emotional part of millennials’ lives, and those two ingredients can trigger love for a name.”
“But there’s this beautiful thing that happens with an Instagram filter. You take these precious moments in your life and it makes them even more beautiful, it enhances them. I think people just have really warm feelings about that and these names come into their consciousness.”
I guess we have to get inspiration from somewhere. Right?
