BabyCenter just released its annual report on the year's most popular baby names, and it included some very interesting trends. Perhaps because 2016 was a shitstorm, many parents named their babies after horror characters, like The Walking Dead's Tyreese (up 48% since 2015), Hershel (up 37%), and Carol (up 18%). AMC Also on the rise were names from Stranger Things: Dustin (up 32%), Mike (up 28%), and Joyce (up 23%). Netflix Iris — the name of Kathy Bates's murderous front desk clerk in American Horror Story: Hotel — was up too (16% from 2015). FX Another trend was to name babies after superheroes — especially those with a dark side. Banner (as in Dr. Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk) was up 48% over 2015. Harley (as in Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad) was up big too — 35%. Warner Bros. Other superhero-related names: Scarlett (up 20%), after Johansson’s roles in The Avengers and Captain America; Tony (up 16%) from Iron Man; and Jessica (up 9%) of Marvel Comics’ Jessica Jones.
