NEXT TIME TRY JOHN OR MARY

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

A most in­ter­est­ing anal­y­sis from the Hollywood Re­porter: Power baby names. The in­dus­try pub­li­ca­tion has iden­ti­fied the most pop­u­lar baby names among the, uh, rich and pow­er­ful.

“Elite par­ents in ur­ban ar­eas lean to­ward very fash­ion-for­ward and so­phis­ti­cated names. They are at­tracted to quirky, not so easy to like names that are more dif­fi­cult to em­brace,” says Pamela

Red­mond Sa­tran — an au­thor of 10 baby name guides who adds that “elite nam­ing” hinges on the un­usual.

Ex­cept maybe in the na­tion’s cap­i­tal per­haps, where the top four baby power names are: Sam, Char­lotte, Jack and Lily. In Los An­ge­les, how­ever, the top four are: Zen, River, Story and James — the last of which is now con­sid­ered a girl’s name. And fi­nally, in New York City, the quar­tet of in­fant power mon­ick­ers are: Dashiell, So­phie, Matilda and Ophe­lia.
