The U.S. Social Security Administration has released its annual report on baby names, and the influence of VH1 shows — specifically, T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle – is difficult to ignore. According to the numbers, “Major” is the fastest-growing boys’ name on the list, while “King” and “Messiah” are becoming “increasingly popular.” Of course they are! T.I. and Tiny were always ahead of the curve.
Experts in the field say “bold” names are hot right now, but we’re left to believe it’s the Harris family’s genuine charm invading delivery rooms and baby name books everywhere that’s responsible. “I have no doubt Major’s rising popularity as a boy’s name is in tribute to the brave members of the U.S. military, and maybe we’ll see more boys named General in the future.” This could be true, acting commissioner of the SSA, Carolyn Colvin, but did you see Tip’s Little Man go shopping for a bunk bed? What about his stuffed animal boxing lesson? What parents wouldn’t want their child to emulate him? Just look at that face.
