I heard “The Look” by Roxette the other day, and it made me wonder: Were any babies named Roxette back when the Swedish pop duo was churning out #1 singles?

The answer is yes, about 30 babies were named Roxette during those years:

* 1989: 5 baby girls named Roxette
* 1990: 6 baby girls named Roxette
* 1991: 5 baby girls named Roxette
* 1992: 7 baby girls named Roxette
* 1993: 6 baby girls named Roxette

Where did the band get its name? From a song — “Roxette” by British rock band Dr. Feelgood. (Not to be confused with “Dr. Feelgood” by American rock band Mötley Crüe.)
