Looks like the United States really are turning into the BG Nation. In a recent study done by the Social Security Administration, as reported on ABC and the Today Show this morning, the name “Brantley” made the biggest jump on the list of 2011 Top Baby Boy Names. It made the leap from number 736 to 320, which is a crazy 416 spots! One of the contributing factors in the big leap is believed to be the rising success of Brantley Gilbert, whose hit single “Country Must Be Country Wide” shot to the top of the charts late last year.
We might see the name jump more this year with the release of his new single “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.” That little tune is currently top 10 at country radio and still rising. What country artist would you name your kids after?
