Frozen proves yet again that its fans are the most hard core

by

Maleficent, Simba, Cinderella… While these are some of our all-time favourite characters, we don’t quite know if we would be naming our kids after them.

Although, it seems that there is one Disney film that has sparked quite the baby name craze.

For the first time since 1917, the name Elsa has climbed its way back into the top 500 most popular baby names.

According to The New York Times, a total of 1,131 babies last year were named after Frozen’s leading lady.   

This surge means that Elsa is now the 286th most common name given to new-born baby girls.

With Frozen 2 having been recently confirmed we can only imagine what number Elsa will be at on the list next year.

Surprisingly, the name Anna only jumped one spot in the overall rankings of popular baby names last year, landing at number 34.
