Is naming your child after Pokemon characters the latest trend?

July 29, 2016

I guess it was likely to happen… parents naming their newborns after Pokémon characters, sparked by the current Pokémon Go craze. After all, it's not a  new thing that current shows inspire a wave of new/revived names (think of Game of Thrones' Daenery, Euron, Ramsay and Tyrion).

According to Babycenter, names such as Roselia, Eevee and Onyx are on the rise for girls, while for boys, the name of Pokémon trainer Ash is gaining popularity along with Ivy and Shay.

Let's just hope they stay away from the likes of Bulbasaur, Geodude and Krabby.
