Here are the top 10 baby names inspired from video games

Mario is only number 3



What’s in a name? For most people, choosing a baby name involves as much precision as surgery. Should you give a baby a normal name or a name with an inherent meaning? Some give names with archaic meanings. Some derive names from popular franchises they love. Of course, those popular franchises can also come from the gaming world. Here are the top ten baby names inspired by video game characters, according to FandomSpot.

Currently, Jacob heads the list. The name comes from Halo: Combat Evolved from way back in 2001. Since then, 412,214 babies have received the name in the United States. Jack, the second-most popular name, comes from Tekken and has graced 219,393 babies since 1994 when the game first came out.

Meanwhile, Mario — likely one of the most popular outside of the baby world — has the third spot. The incredibly popular franchise leader has 79,567 named after him since 1983. Daisy, Luigi’s partner, is on the fifth spot with 63,685 babies since her introduction in 1989.

The fourth name, Miles, comes from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992) and has 67,550 babies since the game’s launch.

Eva, from Devil May Cry (2001), has the sixth spot. Jade, from Beyond Good and Evil (2003) has the seventh spot. Chloe, from Life is Strange (2015), occupies the eight spot. Marcus, from Gears of War (2006), has the ninth spot. Finally, Ellie, from Last of Us (2013), has the final spot in the top ten list.

Horizon Forbidden West reportedly delayed to 2022

Another delay this year



Horizon Forbidden West

When the console was announced last year, the PlayStation 5 revealed an impressive lineup of games coming for the next generation. The list included highly anticipated sequels to popular PlayStation 4 titles likes Spider-Man: Miles Morales, God of War Ragnarok, and Horizon Forbidden West. However, because of some reason or another, the titles were delayed beyond the near future. Unfortunately, one of the titles, Horizon Forbidden West, is reportedly delayed once again.

According to Bloomberg, the title is now set for a release sometime in 2022, rather than its formerly projected timeframe for this year’s holiday season. The report does not reveal what the reason is for such a delay. If anything, it’s not the first delay for the gaming industry this year. The games’ respective developers have also reportedly delayed God of War Ragnarok and Gran Turismo 7.

Of note, however, the supposed delay hasn’t been officially announced yet. There’s still a chance that the game is coming this year.

Even if the game is truly delayed to next year, 2022 is looking like a great year for PlayStation gamers. Besides the aforementioned games, another title announced during the console’s launch event, Stray, is also coming next year. The delays, at least, compensate for the still-ongoing chip and console shortages plaguing the industry today.
