  • Upon learning that they're pregnant, one of the first things parents would probably ask is: "What name should I give to my baby?"

    Parents want interesting and unique names or monikers that can set their babies up for success or good luck. Some take insipiration from their own names, some from names of famous personalities, and apparently, more parents are naming their children after Marvel characters!

    Aside from being a hit on the big screen, Marvel is also turning into a popular baby name generator in the United States. Data from the U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) showed that in 2020, a significant increase of babies bearing the names of Marvel superheroes are observed.

    Take, for example, Loki, who has appeared in several “Thor” and “Avengers” films. From 55 boys named Loki in 2010, SSA recorded a rise of 130 boys in 2020, plus five girls.

    Popular baby names inspired by Marvel Universe  

    Despite exterminating half of all the living things in the universe (hope that was not a spoiler), Thanos also gained popularity among name-seeking parents. 

    Some of the popular names that are Marvel characters, as collated by HuffPost, are

    1. Anthony
    2. Ava
    3. James (as in James Rogers)
    4. Maria (for Maria Hill)
    5. Morgan
    6. Parker
    7. Samuel
    8. Zuri
    9. Soren
    10. Jane

    If you're feeling the power in your hands, below are some of the Marvel-inspired names you can consider:


    One of Marvel's heroine known for her skills in combat and leadership.


    In Marvel, Vision had one of the Infinity Stones known as the Mind Stone. Aside from his superhuman intelligence, Vision is commendable for his calm demeanor.



    Natasha Romanoff a.k.a Black Widow is definitely a force to be reckoned with given her determination. Natasha sees to it that she will complete every mission given to her.


    An ode to Star-Lord whose real name is Peter Quill. He's lovable mostly because of his good sense of humor and authenticity. 


    Nick Fury is SHIELD's director. He may seem overbearing on the outside but it's only because he's a man of principles.
