The Baby Names of 2013 That Weren’t

The Social Security Administration has released the top 1000 girls’ and boys’ names for 2013.  Not among them:

Osama
Atilla
Adolph
Vlad
Caligula
Idi
Pol

And while Monica remains in the top 1000 names for girls, every year since, well, herm, the name Monica has become less popular.  Last year Monica sunk from its early ’90s perch in the top 100 to #502 on the girls’ list.

It is nice to know that a sex act doesn’t hold the same punishing weight as genocide, though, isn’t it?
