As Mila rises for girls, so Milan is becoming a more popular option for boys, especially now that singer Shakira has chosen it for her son. It rose 650 spots from 2012 to 2013, to make it from outside of the Top 1000 into the Top 600. It was the second fastest-rising name in 2013.
Milan is in the Top 10 for boys in The Netherlands and Hungary and in the Top 20 in Belgium. With the first syllable pronounced mee, this could also suggest the Italian city, although the native version Milano is a lot livelier. Milan Kundera was the (male) writer of The Unbearable Lightness of Being.
