I hope not, it's on my shortlist!

I have a hard time imagining Imogene ranking at the top. We would have to see a MAJOR style shift away from the flowy, vowel-filled names that currently reign.
I would group Imogene with Clementine - slightly clunky, consonant-heavy. Clementine could be considered trendy, and it IS getting more attention, but even at that there were only 204 girls who got the name last year. Compared to a decade ago, there were 19 Clementines in 2003. That's a much faster growth than Imogen -- 45 in 2003 to 111 in 2012.
It would definitely take a pop culture reference to even bring Imogene into consciousness - like a movie or starbaby, and that is utterly unpredictable. Even so, you're back to looking at major trends and it's just not compatible with the heaps of ella/ia/lee names at the top. If Imogen is headed for the top, it's a longggggggg way off. Like, a decade off.
