BabyCenter says that the names of some of the Pokemon GO characters have spiked in popularity, with names like Evee, Onyx and Roselia jumping 1,394 spots, 2,191 spots and 5,896 spots compared to a year ago, respectively. BabyCenter says that in a recent survey, close to 50% of the moms in the community are active Pokemon GO players.
