Gender: M Origin of Atlas: Greek god name Atlas's Popularity in 2013: #789

Previously thought too powerful for a baby boy--who would have to be strong enough to carry the sky on his shoulders--Atlas has joined the pantheon of Greek and Roman god and goddess names now in the realm of possibility, along with Mars, Zeus and Hermes. It was one of the fast-rising names on the 2013 list, jumping from oblivion into the Top 800. Anne Heche was one of the first to make this audacious choice.
