This was a lucky find. While researching Press Your Luck contestant names for yesterday’s post, I found out that there was a PYL precursor called Second Chance that aired for a few months during 1977 (March to July).
Only a handful of those 95 Second Chance episodes still exist, and there are currently only two on YouTube. But one of those two happens to feature a contestant with the unique name Davenia.
And is Davenia in the SSA data? Yup:
- 1978: unlisted
- 1977: 5 baby girls named Davenia [debut]
- 1976: unlisted
Not surprisingly, it debuted the very same year Second Chance was on the air. :)
What do you think of the name Davenia?
