We don’t know how long the “Pokemon Go” craze is going to last, but some kids are going to grow up with a permanent reminder.

According to BabyCenter.com, there’s been a huge jump this month of people naming their babies after Pokemon characters.

Fortunately, it doesn’t seem like they’re going for the crazier ones like Pikachu and Jigglypuff, they’re picking characters that actually kind of sound like reasonable human names.

The girls’ names that are skyrocketing are Roselia, Onyx, and Eevee.  For boys, it’s Star, Ivy, and Shea. BabyCenter says those come from the Pokemon characters Starmie, Ivysaur, and Shaymin.

A spokeswoman from BabyCenter says they’re not surprised at the trend, since they just ran a survey and found half of moms say they play “Pokemon Go”.
