…baby name expert [Laura Wattenberg] took stock of the increase in gun and hunting-themed baby names. Her statistics [from 2002-2012] show a steady rise in firearm nomenclature…. “Colt, Remington, and Gauge have all soared, and Gunner is much more common than the traditional name Gunnar.”
Ruger is also a surprising new star among current boys' names. But what about the girls?
According to Wattenberg, the fastest growing name for girls in the past year was Cataleya, the main character in the movie Colombiana, where Zoe Saldana plays a child of murdered parents who grows up to be an assassin.
