  1. My favorite Pi name is Pixley! It was only ever given to 5 baby girls in 1958, but I think it deserves to make a comeback, especially with current -ley trends such as Kinsley and Hensley.

  2. I’ve been curious about that one for a long time! Wonder where it came from that year.

    I agree — if more parents were aware of the name Pixley, it would probably see more usage these days, because it does fit the trends.
