Gender: F Meaning of Natalie: "birthday of the Lord" Origin of Natalie: French variation of Russian Natalia Natalie's Popularity in 2015: #27

Natalie -- a Franco-Russian name -- became Americanized years ago, and now a new generation is reviving Natalie to join former canasta partners Sophie and Belle. Always well used, it is now at Number 27.

Sometimes given to girls born on Christmas, Natalie was Cameron Diaz's character in Charlie's Angels, and was attached to first Natalie Wood, then Natalie Cole (named for her father), and now Natalie Portman.

Natalie has been a TV regular ranging from the lovable character on the old The Facts of Life, to Monk to the current Orange is the New Black.

She also has musical ties to singers, in addition to Cole--Maines, Imbruglia and Merchant, and to a not too flattering hit song by Bruno Mars.
