Yes, Many Parents are Naming Their Babies Corona


Finding the perfect name for your baby is a big deal for new parents. Some moms and dads will name their infant after the season, month or day of the week; some after a beloved family member.

And some this year are choosing a moniker that pays homage to the extraordinary year 2020 has been, with everyone changing their daily lives beyond recognition, because of the global pandemic.

Pregnancy website “The Bump” released its Top 100 Most Popular Baby Names this month, and, for the first time, Corona appeared, in the one hundredth spot on the “girls’ name” list. (As an aside, parents are typically less concerned these days with traditional gendered names for their kids, so while the rankings are interesting, there’s no reason not to just go with the name you love most).
