Baby Boom predicted if All Blacks Win, 15 hottest names!

After the 1987 world cup win to the All Blacks there was a brief spike in the number of babies born, if the All Blacks are successfull tonight the prediction is the same will follow!

“Figures released to the Otago Daily Times from Statistics NZ show that during March 1988 there were 4822 births, almost 400 births more than in February and April (1)”

“Prominent All Blacks also appear to be influencing the names of boys born around each tournament, with distinctive names such as Taine (1999-2000), Carlos (2003) and Carter (2007-08) appearing in the top 100 New Zealand boys’ names (1)”

I have selected 15 names from the All Blacks which I think are attractive to those wanting to honor all All Black 2011.

*Benson (Stanley)

*Conrad (Smith)

*Ellis (Andrew)

*Israel (Dagg)

*Jimmy (Cowan)

*Kahui (Richard)

* Kaino (Jerome)

*Muliaina (Malili)

*Nonu (Ma’a)

*Piri (Weepu)

*Ranger (Rene)

*Read (Kieran)

*Slade (Colin)

During the Christian era it was merged with the Latin cognateLeo, with the result that the two forms are used somewhat interchangeably across European languages. In England during the Middle Ages this was a common name among Jews. A famous bearer was Leon Trotsky (1879-1940), a Russian Communist revolutionary. (behindthename.com)
