Move Over, Asher: Atticus Is The New Top Name For Boys
The name Atticus has become the country's most trending boy's name, but will that popularity last?By Ryan Biek | July 17, 2015
The ancient Roman name "Atticus" has surged in popularity to become the most trending name for baby boys in 2015.
According to Nameberry's annual half-year survey, "Atticus" is the most viewed baby name of the year so far by expectant parents, taking the crown from the long-time favorite "Asher."
Interest in the name was crawling for decades before this recent jump. In fact, Atticus didn't even appear on Nameberry's top 1000 baby names lists until 2004, and it was ranked 370th just last year.
