Baby Names That Rock: Jagger, Jackson & Prince

February 25, 2016 Linda Rosenkrantz

Last month, just weeks after David Bowie died, there were two baby boys given the name of Bowie in the Nameberry community alone, a sure sign that the brilliant and popular recently deceased singer will join other rock legends in the baby name ranks. Some of these names are more tightly tied to the namesake musician than others, and a couple of them have gone over to the girls’ side.


The King’s surname has been a unisex success story since 1998, when the girls first were attracted to its ‘ley’ ending. Presley is now at its peak point of Number 189, it was bestowed on 1700+ baby girls last year. Way higher than Elvis is for boys.
