You can thank Mick Jagger for putting the name Bianca into the minds of American parents: In 1971, the uber-popular rocker married a disco-loving woman named Bianca, and that was enough to set the name on fire within a year or two. But the name had been around long before the 1970s: Shakespeare liked Bianca so much, he gave it to characters in “Othello” and “The Taming of the Shrew.” And who could forget about the fun-loving yet sassy Bianca from "10 Things I Hate About You"? Somehow this name manages to be exotic and exciting yet pure and innocent.
