With every second film killing it at the box office a superhero film, it’s not hard to see how this happened. You see a hero from the MCU you like, the name resonates with you, and you give it to your unborn child.
According to the U.S Social Security Administration, of the 1,000 most popular baby names last year, a lot of them were straight out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I mean, sure, there could be other reasons why these names happened to come up, that have nothing to do with Marvel movies, but honestly, it’s too much of a coincidence.
Luckily, most of the popular Marvel names aren’t too far out there (sadly, no T’Challa, Odin, Sif, Volstagg, or Obediah), but there are some cool ones that’ll make you the toast of the playground once you hit first grade.
