Looks like future moms and dads are turning to the pop charts when deciding what to name their kids. The baby name website Nameberry lists Niall as the second and Blue as the seventh most-searched-for baby names so far this year. It's quite possible that One Direction 's Niall Horan and Blue Ivy Carter , daughter to Beyonce and Jay-Z , are responsible for all the increased attention.
According to Nameberry, searches for "Blue" are up more than 600 percent from last year. As for "Niall," it's an ancient Irish name that means "cloud," apparently.
