Monroe is a presidential name with a lot more muscle for a girl than a boy. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon chose it for their twin daughter, honoring Marilyn Monroe. Carey's use of Monroe as a girls' name did much to revive this Old Man name, ala Sydney, as a fashionable choice for girls -- it was one of 2013's fastest-rising names, jumping from the bottom of the Top 1000 to Number 763.
