Naming your baby Simone won't guarantee she'll win a gold medal at the Olympics, but plenty of expecting parents seem to be drawing inspiration from the standout Simones of the Rio games.
Searches for "Simone baby name" have spiked 230 percent in August, according to Google Trends.
The Simone surge comes as Simone Biles dominated the gymnastics competition, clinching four gold medals and one bronze. Swimmer Simone Manuel also emerged as one of the stars of the games, earning a pair of gold and silver medals.
