Parents Are Naming Their Kids After Pokémon Go Characters


Following the success of Pokémon Go, parents are naming their children after Pokémon characters.

According to Baby Center, an increasing number of newborns are going to grow up names like Roselia, Ash, Eevee and Onyx.

The US pregnancy and parenting website says around half of their users are playing the game regularly right now.

But it is unclear how many new mothers will actually name their children Bulbasaur.

“Parents are always looking to pop culture for baby name inspiration and, right now, it doesn’t get hotter than Pokemon Go,” said global editor in chief of Baby Center, Linda Murray.

“It’s possible that parents’ enthusiasm for the game will reignite their love for the brand and spark a full-fledged naming trend.”

The website finds out what new parents are naming their kids while they’re registering.

Here are the names connected to Pokemon Go that have grown in popularity compared to traditional names.

  • 1. Roselia – it’s risen 5,859 spots
  • 2. Onyx – up 2,184 spots
  • 3. Star – 2,040
  • 4. Eevee – 1,377 places
  • 5. Ivy – 1,287 spots
  • 6. Ash – 248 spots
  • 7. Shay – 64 spots
