Listophile Announces Findings of Music Industry Baby Name Study - Benzinga

DENVER, Oct. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reference website Listophile has conducted a study into the latest baby naming trends from the music industry. More than 3 million instances of baby names were analyzed to reveal the pop stars, musicians, and bands who are inspiring our babies' names.
In today's never-ending quest for new and creative baby names, the study suggests significant numbers of parents are turning to the world of music for inspiration.
Musical names sound iconic, and for music lovers, they are the perfect channel of self-expression. Music - and names - evoke emotions and feelings. They hold sentimental value - and both allow us to express our individuality. The study also suggests that parents are using music-inspired baby names to signify their child's uniqueness and non-conformism.
