I'm curious: Do you guys think that the growing Hispanic community is changing the country's naming style? I'm asking this because of Raphael. For a long time, I wouldn't use it because it was too heavily associated with the Turtles. However, it's fairly popular in the Hispanic community , less tied to the Turtles, and therefore, it's now usable. I've also seen many posts with names like Veronica, Marisol, and other Spanish names.
I think it's great - many names that would have once seemed too exotic are usable again - especially with Mercedes and Marisol. Has anyone else noticied this trend?
