Change in popularity

This list is always interesting. It shows names that have dramatically grown or dropped in popularity.

Briella grew the most for girls. It jumped up 394 places in one year. Does anyone know where the name comes from? A TV show? A movie?

Brantley jumped 416 places in one year for a boy. There is a newly popular country singer named Brantley Gilbert. Maybe that's where they're getting it from.  I went to school with a girl named Brantley. Yuck!

Zaiden jumped 131 spots for boys.

Kamden jumped 109 for boys.

Bruce jumped up 62 spots. How random!

Nylah jumped up 149 spots for girls.

Raelynn jumped up 133 spots for girls.

Brynlee jumped 130 spots for girls.

Bristol jumped 126 spots for girls.

Charlee jumped 119 for girls.

Dylan jumped 82 spots for girls.

Presley jumped 47 spots for girls. There are various spellings so expect this one to become very popular.

Desiree fell 121 spots for girls. Yay!

Jamarion fell 112 spots for boys.

Briella Calafiore is a fairly minor person in the reality show Jerseylicious. Her last name looks Italian so maybe her first name is also. Might also be short for Gabriella.

Sadly, Brantley is the name of one of MTV's "Teen Moms", so I'm guessing that has something to do with it's popularity. It's not a bad name, it just sounds awful when the mom drags it out with a Georgia twang - "Braaaaaaanntleeeeeee..." *cringe*

Would the increase for the name Bruce have anything to do with Bruce Banner, aka the Incredible Hulk? After all the Avengers are hot right now.

Also, I have an uncle named Bruce, and he's awesome.
