Huge Spike in These US Baby Names Highlight Just How Popular the First Family Is Among Americans

Good news for the first family, if nothing else, Americans are admiring their names as they’ve surged in recent years, growing more popular as baby names.

Social Security Administration data shows U.S. first lady Melania Trump’s and Ivanka Trump’s names boosted in hospitals as baby names, according to an AreaVibes survey.

According to the survey, which shows the popularity of the baby names between 2015 and 2017, the name “Melania” has increased by 227 percent.

The survey reveals that “Ivanka” is actually the most popular amongst the other names within the first family, as the name surged by 362 percent.

Unlike the Trump women’s names gaining popularity, the president’s name “Donald” has decreased in popularity slightly by 11 percent between 2015 and 2017.

The president’s son Eric Trump also had a less popular name, as the name “Eric” lost popularity by six percent.

But not all of the boys’ names have been on the decline in popularity, as Trump’s son Barron’s name saw a boost by 90 percent.

The Trump women’s name popularity is a contrast to the name “Hillary” after former U.S. first lady Hillary Clinton and her husband entered former president Bill Clinton’s presidency, as her name saw a “precipitous drop” in popularity afterward, according to AreaVibes.

Americans are showing their approval for the current first lady as “Melania” was ranked fifth on the list of names rising in popularity in 2016 and 2017, as IJR Red previously noted — the name means “black” in Spanish and Greek origin.

As her name becomes more popular for baby names, the U.S. first lady’s approval rating was at 54 percent favorable, according to a CNN poll in October — while President Trump holds a 42.4 percent approval rating and 51.8 disapproval rating, according to FiveThirtyEight.
