Holy Hell, People Are Naming Their Sons ‘Django’ Now

Burnsy already covered Nameberry’s recently-released list of 2014’s top 100 baby names and while there’s endless material there, one name in particular stood out: Django. Almost certainly a product of Quentin Tarantino’s 2012 slavesploitation masterpiece, “Django” made number 46 on the list. Which may not seem that popular in a vacuum, but consider this: “Andrew” was number 48. DJANGO IS NOW MORE POPULAR THAN ANDREW.

The craziest thing about this is that we’re raising a generation of children that won’t even have to explain that the D is silent.

“Django” wasn’t even a new entry or a fast riser. It’s just holding steady, like it’s been there for years. God help us when the creatively-spelled versions take over and we start getting D’Jangos and Dgeangos and Jncos.

“Popular” may be a bit of a misnomer, however, as the list wasn’t compiled using actual birth certificates. It was “based on the number of views each name attracted on Nameberry.”

Oh thank God.

Also making the list, five slots higher than “Django” was the clearly ‘Point Break’-inspired “Bodhi.” God help some poor kid named Bodhi if I’m ever the teacher in his class. No matter what he asked, I’d just pretend not to hear and keep saying “Speak in to the microphone, Squidbrain!”

No way that would ever get old.

I really like imagining “Hey There Delilah” as “Hey There Khaleesi.” Hey there Khaleesi, what’s it like in Cincinnati…
