Turns out parents don’t like naming their children after Hollywood’s unfaithful husbands. Their adored Hollywood wives, however, are another story.
While the name Jesse, as in Jesse James, becomes less popular on BabyCenter.com’s annual Baby Names Survey, Sandra continues to creep up the list, according to the site’s editor in chief, Linda Murray.
