We knew the "Hunger Games" fandom was pretty intense, but we didn't think it would have quite this big of a cultural impact.
According to Nameberry's list of 2013's popular baby names (thus far), there are apparently some fans who love Suzanne Collins' trilogy enough to consider naming their daughter after its teen heroine, Katniss.
The name arrives at No. 10 on Nameberry's roundup of the top 100 most popular girl names on its site. At the top of the heap is Imogen, which, funnily enough, also happens to be a variation of the name of Kristen Wiig's character in her July release, "Girl Most Likely."
The list is based on page views the site's received for the first half of 2013, and reflects some of the trendy names in pop culture and entertainment. Merida, the name of Disney/Pixar's feisty heroine in "Brave," is at No. 16 on the list. (Maybe these potential parents want their daughters to be bosses when it comes to bows and arrows?)
The same effect can be seen in the list of the top 100 names for boys, too. While Asher is at No. 1, the name of a recent Jamie Foxx character isn't far behind. "Django" is the No. 4 most-viewed name on Nameberry, in between Declan and James.
wow he's crazy about her isn't he? hahahaha

I named my daughter Phallus, an offshoot of Phyllis.
stupid movie..POOF....no more emails for months POOF
She's a putz and calls her boyfriend a drunk...loser
Catniss fights a fight to the death, Django goes on a crusade killing dozens.
Sorry people, but if you name your kids this most likely they'll never make it out of the trailer park.
your happycow 22 days are over soon....buy yourself a dress and act like a lady
Naming your kid "Katniss" is a great way to let everyone know you were a teenager when you had her.
I'll be away at times make sure you 00 her .... the woman is no good we don't need that filth...I will have mac
why would any actress announce too the internet about coi gals....the woman has no class they really should retire this actress once and for all
She told everyone on internet she supported her man when he was not working ....why? she's a dumb actress
always proved too me what a professional he always was....the best in the industry
Katniss is a complete BAMF.
She gets stabbed,injured,almost starves to death,dehydrates,gets attacked by wild animals and overthrows the governemnt of a post-nuclear holocost totalitarian regime.
In this day and age, we need some names with more "bite" in them:
Asassina, Jackalia, Shootemia, Reloadia, Firenowa, Bulletina, Fullautomatica, etc.
Turn off your friggin' caps lock and bold people.
THERE YOU HAVE IT.
In a few years the kid will ask "How did I get this name, people keep asking." The parent will make the kid watch the movie. At the end the kid will turn and say "Your kidding."
I like Django because of Django Reinhardt. But Katniss? People make fun of my name because it's Arabic, but I can only laugh as American names become more banal as time goes on. Omar (snicker snicker), this is my son Bumper.
How original. Poor kids.
How about "Fallopia" ?
I have a confession. I was a little bummed when my parents gave me my name. I was named after my father. How creative. I've always liked Sebastian. Or Stanford.
Why anyone would bring a child into this world is beyond me. However, I realize I've become a grumpy person as of late. So.... breed! Breed like jack rabbits! Pretend the world isn't occupied by 7 billion people. And do you know the real kicker? Only 15% of this planet is habitable for humans.
good point. I really wish your parents had had the same opinion.
I agree, John. They should have stopped with me instead of having 3 more children, who, by the way, are unemployed, on welfare and raise 4 children of their own. But I suppose a bright bulb like yourself see nothing wrong with that. Have a great day!
My wife and I named our daughter 'P00n.' We had no idea...
the lack of "that" is an issue...
the woman in the picture is very pretty
Indeed, she's a knock-out!
Jennifer Lawrence, award-winning actress at age 22, despite the fact
