Baby Girls Named Jeopardy in 1983
|April 19, 2011|
This one confused me for a while:
- 1984: unlisted
- 1983: 6 baby girls name Jeopardy [debut]
- 1982: unlisted
Jeopardy was a one-hit wonder on the SSA’s baby name list in 1983.
My first (and only) guess was the popular quiz show Jeopardy, but the show began airing in the mid-1960s, so that probably wasn’t it.
Then, a week or two ago, I heard what I think is the answer on an ’80s radio station. It was a tune called “Jeopardy” by The Greg Kihn Band.
“Jeopardy” was apparently one of the top songs in the nation in early 1983. I’d never have guessed it by the bizarre music video.One-hit wonder baby names | 1890s: Maine | 1910s: Leneve, Ormi | 1920s: Dardenella, Derelys, Seroba | 1930s: Dixianna, Torchy | 1940s: Saford, Donivee, Drene | 1950s: Frosty, Eisenhower, Judalon, Bimbo, Bobbyetta, Twig, Gogi, Theonita, Monsita, Kookie | 1960s: Bonanza, Chubbie, Apasra, Ronisue, Twiggy, Francellia | 1970s: Gandalf, Corelle, Kattina, Sirica, Chaffee, Comaneci, Akwete, Ibe, Idi, Jitu, Kairaba, Kizi, Kuntakinte, Lavare, Reannan, Wilona, Travolta | 1980s: Kimario, Lencola, Nykeba, Fame, Nahema, Chachi, Senchal, Jeopardy, Tyecha, Mergeron, Calizza, Codero, Lutece, Marlesa, Tereva, Condola, Matlock, Cassarah, Stedmen, Christop | 1990s: Vaitiare, Keemo, Ziyadah, Corvina, Picabo | 2000s: Iuma, Rikishi, Sisqo, Legolas, Tsitsiki, Qorianka, Sensi, Euphoria, Adrialys
