Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, is also trending, emotional up more than 11.000 spots or eighty-two % on the list of top names for girls.

Still, Lucas -- as in George Lucas, the creator of the "Star Wars" franchise -- is the fifth most favorite title for boys. BabyCenter notes that the powerful ranking for Lucas may have nothing to do with the film since the title has been steadily climbing in popularity since the company began tracking names fifteen years ago.
