WILMINGTON, Del., April 5 (UPI) -- Delaware website Nameberry said baby names attracting increased interest during the year so far include Marnie, Nelly, Bruce and Thor.

Nameberry's list of 13 names garnering significantly higher views during the first three months of the year include Marnie, Marlowe, Christian and Nellie, NBC News reported Friday.

The list also included Bruce, Mavis, Wilder and Finnigan.

The site said interest in Thor, the Norse god of thunder, was likely inspired by Chris Hemsworth's portrayal in "Thor" and "The Avengers," while Severine's popularity was likely boosted by the Berenice Marlohe's character in "Skyfall."

The list was rounded out by Phaedra, Mingus and Linnea.
