Gender: M Meaning of Phoenix: "dark red" Origin of Phoenix: Greek Phoenix's Popularity in 2013: #382

Phoenix rolls a lot of cool trends into one: it's a place-name and a bird name, it ends in the oh-so-hip letter x, and as the mythic bird that rose from the ashes, it's a symbol of immortality. It's also got celebrity chops, via the acting family that includes Joaquin and the late River, and as the child of an ex-Spice Girl. With all of these factors, it's no surprise this name was on the rise in 2013, making its way into the Top 500.
