It is with great regret that we bring your 2013's most popular baby names so far.

Sophie? If only.

 

We both want to have babies while it’s still cool. I already have all the names picked out. If it’s a girl, Bookcase… or Sandstorm… or maybe Hat, but that’s more of a boy’s name.” – Cerie, 30 Rock

Ah yes, the old baby name conversation. Are they getting too ridiculous? Will it scar them for life? If I call him Adolf will he be a homicidal dictator? Will all Britneys/Bethaneys/Courtneys be doomed to a life of cheerleading and heavy petting?

Usually at the end of each year, we get a list telling us how the all new parents of the last 12 months have managed to ruin any chance their children would ever have had of leading the country. Would we really want a ‘Prime Minister Diva Thin Muffin’ greeting world leaders? (Thanks Frank Zappa.) How about a Princess Consuela Bananahammock? (C’mon… think about where that one comes from.)

But this year, baby name website nameberry.com has already created a list of the most popular names so far. And it may only be April, but there is definitely some… interesting choices so far. Take a look at the top 13:

“How could you have done this to me?!?” – Moon Unit

1. Marnie

2. Marlowe

3. Christian

4. Nelly

5. Mavis

6. Thor

7. Severine

8. Bruce

9. Wilder

10. Phaedra

11. Mingus

Certainly not anything like Anastasia Beaverhausen, but still. Thor? Really? Prime Minister Thor… Yeah, not really feeling it.

What do you think of the top baby names so far? Love or loathe?
