As Mila rises for girls, so Milan is becoming a more popular option for boys, especially after singer Shakira chose it for her son. After a 55-year hiatus, it reentered the Top 1000 in 2013 and is heading dramatically upward.

Milan has been a Top 10 name for boys in The Netherlands and Hungary, as well as making 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.
