Here are some of the top one-hit wonder girl names of all time, from 1880 to 2012:

  1. Alexandr, 301 baby girls in 1989.
  2. Jacqueli, 157 baby girls in 1989.
  3. Cassandr, 152 baby girls in 1989.
  4. Jacquely, 50 baby girls in 1989.
  5. Meghaan, 36 baby girls in 1984.

  7. Charnissa, 32 baby girls in 1974.
  8. Jocell, 31 baby girls in 2011.
    • Aidsa, 30 baby girls in 2007.
    • Madelis, 30 baby girls in 2007.
  9. Yaindhi, 29 baby girls in 2008.
    • Eshanti, 27 baby girls in 2002.
    • Kitzie, 27 baby girls in 1979.
    • Devy, 27 baby girls in 1960.
    • Sarela, 26 baby girls in 2006.
    • Nykeba, 26 baby girls in 1980.
    • Saresa, 26 baby girls in 1974.
  10. Shadava, 25 baby girls in 1983.

  12. Yoshigei, 21 baby girls in 2006.
  13. Francesc, 19 baby girls in 1989.

If we ignore all the 1989 names — which are only truncated spelling variants caused by the great baby name glitch of 1989 — the real #1 one-hit wonder becomes Meghaan.

Here’s what I can tell you about some of the above: Shastelyn, Jocell, Madelis and Raengel were inspired by Mexican beauty queens; Aidsa and Yaindhi were inspired by the TV show Objectivo Fama; Eshanti was inspired by singer Ashanti; Nykeba was inspired by a mention in Ebony magazine.

Can you come up with explanations for any of the others?
