|Have baby, need name
According to Nameberry, a popular online baby name guide, the hot trending names of 2012 have a surprising source: Good, old-fashioned books. This year’s crop of bouncing bundles of joy are taking names from a variety of page-turners; from the ever-influential Bible to the more recently published Hunger Games trilogy.
From the popularity of TwiGames (Twilight and Hunger Games) we get the female name Senna and its male counterpart, Cinna. Senna is one of Twilight’s sparkly vamps, while Cinna makes his own sparkles as a Hunger Games stylist.
Considering the reach of the Hunger Games, which recently hit the big screen in March, it should come as no surprise that it helped to influence another entry on the list with the roman-sounding name, Decimus. Most of the names in the book harken back to Ancient Rome: Cinna, Seneca, Claudius, etc. The name Decimus, explains Nameberry, is usually given to the tenth child as it derives from the Latin word for ten, decem.
