Everyone Is Naming Their Baby "Elsa" Now, Because of Frozen

Which Disney princess are you named after? If you were born in the last year, there's a good chance it's Elsa.

A report from BabyCentre shows that since the release of Frozen, the name "Elsa"—the movie's ice queen, duh—has jumped 243 spots in girls' name rankings, and now sits at number 88 in the top 100. Sarah Barrett, Managing Editor of BabyCentre, offers her thoughts on why:

"Whilst the film's popular heroine is called Anna, Elsa offers a more unique name and is also a strong female role model. Elsa is the ice queen but she sees the error of her ways and is shown to be a sensitive, but strong and confident character. Just in the way the name Arya from Game of Thrones increased in popularity in 2013, films are hugely influential."

Anna Hill, Vice President of Disney UK gave her thoughts to BabyCentre, as well:

"We're delighted that Elsa is a popular name for babies and it's lovely to hear that for many families, it is actually their siblings who have chosen it. We've been bowled over by the response to Frozen - it's now the fifth biggest film of all time and families are really connecting with Elsa's fight to overcome her fears and the powerful strength of the family bond which has helped her to achieve this."

"My mom named me after Game of Thrones. What did your parents name you after?"

"Frozen."

"Oh, cool."

"I guess."
