Melania Trump has left quite a mark on people ever since she became the first lady of United States. According to the New York Post, The First Lady has managed to give the name a popularity boost. The name has been seen in 720 places in the Social Security Administration’s annual list of the nation’s top baby names.

As of January 2017, the name Melania was number 1,650. However, things quickly changed as the name jumped straight to number 930 later in 2017. This makes the name one of the five most growing names for baby girls. Milania Donna Stewart of Jersey City, age 2, is one among the many who shares the same name as the first lady. “We didn’t think we’d get weird looks in the supermarket and would have to explain it to everyone we meet,” dad Bodie Stewart told the newspaper. 

Bob noted that her daughter's name has been evoked from Italy’s fashion capital, Milan. “She was born nine months before the election when nobody gave Donald Trump a shot at winning,” he said. He added that he calls his daughter Mila for short and does not like to "yell her name out loud”.

“You may love the president, but your baby’s going to have to live with that name for a very long time,” he said. Meanwhile, Melania is also considered to be one of the most beautiful first ladies. The current first lady started her career as a model and has posed for a number of magazines. 

During her modeling career, Melania also did a racy photoshoot for GQ magazine. She first started modeling at the age of five and was doing a number of commercials at the age of sixteen. Things changed when at the age of eighteen she signed a contract with a modeling agency in Milan, Italy. It was during one of the after parties of the shows in 1997 that Melania met Donald Trump.

They soon started dating and were engaged in 2004. The pair married in 2005 and have been together since then. Ever since Trump took on the role of the president, she has been by her husband's side in every matter despite stories from the media saying that the two share a troubled relationship.
