Joaquin

This formerly unique name is now part of mainstream pop culture thanks to Oscar-nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix, younger brother of River, or perhaps due to daytime talk show hostess with the mostess, Kelly Ripa, who named her son Joaquin. Whatever the case, this name, which is derived from the Hebrew Joachim (“established by God”), is experiencing a surge in popularity it has never seen before, particularly in South America.
