    Did you read the first article?

    "This leads to the second difference: the names they chose. Oliver and colleagues find that there were roughly two kinds of uncommon baby names: ones that are completely made up or just different spellings of common names (like “Jazzmyne” for Jasmine), and ones that are just esoteric. When racial minorities and the poor chose uncommon names, they were more likely to choose the former. When Democrats or liberals chose uncommon names, they were more likely to choose the latter."

    What the first article didn't note, but which is relevant to the second, is that racial minorities and the poor tend to vote Democrat -- thus the results of the BabyCenter poll.
