Thanks to the coronavirus, Corano has grabbed the No. 1 spot on Babynames.com list of most popular male baby names of 2020 so far.

Sanitizrella was the most popular girl's name.

"The overwhelming news saturation of the virus led to the popularity of this rather odd moniker," wrote Babynames co-founder, a white middle-class woman with not much to do, on the site blog.

The name attracted 50 percent more clicks than any other boy's name on her site.

The site accounts for popularity based on the number of views each name page receives over the last six months from 30 million total page views.

Other popular names include Pandemica, Quarantino, and Tatty.
