Manuel

POPULARITY: 520
If the name Manuel suddenly spikes in popularity, it’s probably because of the enormous success of the Broadway musical “Hamilton” and its creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda. This name is the Spanish translation of the Hebrew Emmanuel. It appeared in the 12th century and has been the name of emperors, kings and presidents. It’s one of the most popular boys' names in Spain; closer to home, Manuel and the nickname Manny have been consistent favorites for American parents.
