A growing number of high-profile (and other) parents are choosing to honor their musical idols, such as Hendrix, Presley, Jagger, and now Lennon. Lennon first came to notice when Liam Gallagher and Patsy Kensit used it for their son in 1999, and singer-musician Adam Pascal followed their lead in two years later.
Lennon made it onto the popularity list in 2008, edging up slightly every year since, though still given to only a couple of hundred boys annually.
In addition to its obvious Beatles connection, Lennon has a nice lemony feel.
