Danity Kane was a pre-fabricated American band formed via the reality TV show Making the Band in late 2005. The group released two successful albums before disbanding in early 2009.
The name of the band had been inspired by the doodlings of band member Dawn Richard:
During a June 2006 appearance on MTV’s TRL, it was announced the group would be called Danity Kane, a reference to a superhero Dawn had created and sketched in the studio during downtime.
Danity wasn’t used much (if at all) as a baby name in the U.S. until 2007, when it popped up on the SSA’s baby name list for the first time:
- 2009: 31 baby girls named Danity
- 2008: 27 baby girls named Danity
- 2007: 25 baby girls named Danity [debut]
- 2006: unlisted
Will there be any more baby girls named Danity now that Danity Kane is kaput, do you think?
UPDATE, 1/9/2015: Danity lingers on the list to this day! Daughtry hasn’t been so lucky.
