After winning trump’s Scots almost ceased to be called sons Donald
The people of Scotland have practically ceased to call their sons by the name Donald. Reported by the Associated Press.
According to the Agency, in 2016, only seven babies were named this name. In 2014, his popularity has fallen by two-thirds.
Observers attribute this to the election of Donald trump President of the United States. “Trump has accelerated the decline in popularity,” — said Carol Howe, an expert of the history of the names of the University of Glasgow.
However, as noted by Cleveland Evans from University Belvieu (Louisiana, USA), elections in the United States only accelerated the exit from the fashion of the already unpopular name.
In the period from 2000 to 2015, in Scotland every year baptized about 20 Donald’s. In 2016, the name was on the 442 in popularity along with the names of Che, Eden and Lomond.
Mother of Donald trump was born in the West of Scotland and emigrated to new York in 1930. Trump has repeatedly referred to his Scottish origins: the region also has several Golf clubs and hotels.
