As First Lady Melania Trump becomes more and more popular with the American public, so does her name.

The name “Melania” jumped 720 spots this year in popularity among baby girls’ names.

The Washington Examiner reported:

First lady Melania Trump is having an influence on children, but not in the way she may have expected.

The first lady’s name is quickly growing in popularity among baby names in the U.S., according to a ranking released Friday by the Social Security Administration.

Her name came in fifth among the fastest-growing girls’ names from 2016 to 2017, moving 720 spots up the list of the most popular girls’ names in the U.S. “Melania” was listed as the 1,650th most-popular name in 2016.

The news coincides with a recent poll showing the first lady’s popularity surging by double digits since January, even among Democrats.
