According to BabyCenter.com, there’s been a massive jump this month of people naming their babies after Pokemon characters.
At least they’re not going for the absolutely crazy names like Snorlax, Pikachu and Jigglypuff. The names COULD be human names, especially in this day and age of trying to give your child the most ‘unique’ name.
The girls’ names that are popular are Roselia, Onyx, and Eevee. For boys, it’s Star, Ivy, and Shea. BabyCenter thinks the boys’ names come from the Pokemon characters Starmie, Ivysaur, and Shaymin.
A spokesperson from BabyCenter says they’re not surprised at this ridiculous trend. The company recently ran a survey and found HALF of moms say they play Pokemon Go. Woah…That’s a lot of Pokemon moms.
