will definitely see a rise in popularity. Even without the singer, it's part of the Maddie
) / Addie
) pool of names. And I couldn't be happier to see Adele
all get a boost in the rankings.
But I wouldn't bet the house on Bruno
going anywhere, or even being on the list at all. If anything that movie made me dislike the name. I didn't before because I know a man whose got a brother named Bruno
. It was just a quirky, odd little name. But that movie did it a disservice.
I've argued in the past for not letting cheesy pop culture references ruin names like Ursula
, and Malachi
. So I'll try to follow my own advice and keep an open mind about Bruno
. It just was never really a favorite to begin with so I don't have much energy for an inner struggle to keep it viable.
