@Jamescon I suspect you're right.

@Ariella. Pop star names will always be in the running for baby names. I suspect the political types will fall more on the negative side, helping to eliminate names.

@James interersting point. I wonder what holds the most infoluence over name selection. Are people more inclined toward names of political figures or of singing stars and the like? I'm sure that should be easier to find with analytics than an accurate prediction of the top name for 2016.

@Ariella. Thinking back to when I was naming my kids (and later my dogs) a key part of such a selection is picking a name that may sound good but when you think about people that had it who you didn't like, it goes in the trash. The hated name holder might be a relative, former classmate, or someone in the public eye.

So, which names that are popular today might fall off in 2016 when certain political activities really pick up the pace? And which will rise? What happens to names like Donald, Hillary, Bobby, Ted, Rand, Marco, Bernie, Jeb, Joe, Mike, Scott, Carly, Ben, and Rick? Hmmm

@kq4ym that would be an interesting exercise for predictive analytics, anticipating the most popular name before the fact.

I'm usually surprised by the year's most popular names. I had thought it would have something to do with celebrity names, but with more and more folks spending more and more time online it probably complicates the analysis if it might be possible to predict next year's pop names.

@Tomsg I haven't found anything revealing how they selected the names, though it seems they do differ by country with a particular name campaign in the UK, the US, etc.

@Tomsg It's possible. I have to see if it's revealed.

Popularity must have been measured by total numbers rather than % to have such an increase.

Perhaps we can have a visualization of the data on names Coke uses for its personalized bottles. Last time they used the 250 most popular names. This year it is expanded to 1000.
