"Melania" rises in popularity as name for baby girls

According to the Social Security Administration, Melania saw a dramatic increase in popularity last year, rising from the 1,650th most popular girls’ name in 2016 to 930th in 2017. The 720-spot rise in rank was the fifth-largest increase among girls’ names last year, falling behind Ensley, Oaklynn, Dream and Oaklyn.

The Associated Press said the surge is “likely influenced by first lady Melania Trump.”
