Boy #7: Elijah
Elijah? Did we read that right? Yes, you might be surprised to see that one on here, given that the first time you probably heard the name was in 2001 thanks to Elijah Wood and Lord of the Rings. You might not have met many Elijahs since then, but that could change in future generations. The cute unique name earns a decent seventh spot. It turns out that it’s a popular Jewish baby boy’s name and Baby Center reports that it has “skyrocketed” in popularity since the 1990s. So, it looks like Frodo did have something to do with it.
