The name Elsa was out of the top 500 names in the United States for nearly 100 years. The last time Elsa was in this elite list was 1917! In 2014, 1,131 baby girls were given the name Elsa in the USA.
The popularity of Disney's Frozen might have something to do with the number of baby girls being named Elsa nearly doubling from 2014 when compared to 2013.
Other names from Disney's hit story also surged in popularity last year, according to the United States Social Security Administration. The number of babies named Olaf, Kristoff, Sven, and even Hans all saw increases last year over 2013. The film's other heroine name, Anna, was already popular and remained in its top-40 position.
