Baby Name Trends for 2015

Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock

Benedict


Actor Benedict Cumberbatch's career is on fire, fueled by roles in The Hobbit trilogy and the Sherlock TV series. He is slated to star in even more big productions in 2015, which will give his austere and interesting name even more exposure. While Benedict probably won't reach the top of baby name charts, the name is gaining some momentum as an alternative to Benjamin, and it is no longer just associated with Benedict Arnold, the famous traitor of the Revolutionary War. It means "blessed" in Latin.
