Adriana and Gisele Walk the Name Runway

According to USMagazine.com, supermodel Adriana Lima and her husband, Marko Jaric, are expecting a baby!  This couple already has quite an interesting mix of names in the fold.  Adriana is from Brazil, but the name Adriana ranks high right here in the United States.  According to BabyNameWizard.com, Adriana is currently ranked 115th in the United States with its peak use being in 2003.  Marko is Serbian (he was born in Belgrade).  The name Marko has never ranked in the top 1000 names of the decade in the United States according to the Social Security Administration.  However, Mark, a common American name, has ranked in the top 1000 names of the decade in the United States every decade since the 1880's!

Speaking of Brazilian supermodels, rumors have been floating around that Gisele Bundchen may also be pregnant.  Both Gisele and Adriana have walked the Victoria's Secret runway, but how does Gisele's name rank compare to Adriana's?  According to BabyNameWizard.com, the name Gisele is not currently ranked in the US, and its peak use came in the 1950s.
