Interested as its on our list! First bit rhymes with DS' name so maybe not. Love it though! And Powers never crosses my mind when I hear it.

I've met 2 under 2.
I think it's still pretty uncommon.

It was the 89th most popular boy's name in 2014, up from 354th in 1996.

It is hugely on the rise.

It's become a little more well-known since the "Austin and Ally" series started on the Disney channel, but I only know one toddler with the name.
