Selena

the moon
ORIGIN: Greek
POPULARITY: 587
With the popularity of pop singer Selena Gomez, it’s surprising that this name isn’t higher on the baby-name polls. But that’s good news for parents who want to give their daughter a modern name that still feels somewhat exclusive. Though it has been around since the 19th century, smooth and soft Selena became prominent in the 1990s when singer Selena Quintanilla became a major star in the Latino community (she was portrayed by Jennifer Lopez in a 1997 biopic two years after her murder).
