Jose No Longer In Favor

What are Hispanics naming their children?
Not Angel, Juan, Luis, Diego or Jesus. They, too, remain among the 100 most popular boys’ names, but collectively, the number of babies with those names also declined in 2010 compared with the year before. Not Fernando or Jorge, either. (Angel ranked 42nd last year compared with 37th the year before.)
Getting away from naming your child Jose has a lot to do with assimilation, but I think most parents also want something unique, something that will stand out amongst the masses.
