Neymar has become by far the most popular name in La Paz, Bolivia according to the city's civil registry office.

According to local paper La Razon, two out of every ten babies have been named after the Seleção star.

And they estimate that this trend will only increase with the majority of men in La Paz named after the Brazilian.

"We believe that in 17 years most adult males will be called Neymar because that is the current trend," civil registry office representative Remigio Condori stated. "It is the name in fashion right now."

Neymar cemented his place on the world stage by impressing as Brazil won the Confederations Cup, and also securing a move to La Liga giants Barcelona.
