The Baby Name Vaitiare

While researching the name Tiare on Monday, I discovered another Tahitian name on the SSA’s baby name list: Vaitiare, which means “water flower” in Tahitian. It was a one-hit wonder on the list in 1991:

  • 1992: unlisted
  • 1991: 5 baby girls named Vaitiare [debut]
  • 1990: unlisted

The influence here might have been Tahitian model/actress Vaitiare Hirshon, who dated Julio Iglesias for much of the 1980s.
