Interesting One-Hit Wonder Baby Names

They came, they went, and they never came back!

These baby names are one-hit wonders in the U.S. baby name data. That is, they’ve only popped up once, ever, in the entire dataset of U.S. baby names (which accounts for all names given to at least 5 U.S. babies per year since 1880).

There are thousands of one-hit wonders in the dataset, but the names below have interesting stories behind their single appearance, so these are the one-hits I’m writing specific posts about. Just click on a name to read more. (Names that aren’t links yet have posts coming soon!)

As I discover (and write about) more one-hit wonders in the data, I’ll add names/links to this page. In the meanwhile, do you have any favorite one-hit wonder baby names?

P.S. If this content looks familiar, that’s because you’ve seen it before! I’ve just put it in a new spot. :)

Babies Named for Beauty Queens

I don’t know much about Nuestra Belleza Mexico, but I can tell you that the Mexican beauty pageant/TV show has had a small effect on the U.S. baby names.

Name debuts that can be attributed to Nuestra Belleza Mexico include…

  • Blancaestela, which debuted in 1994 with 5 baby girls. Inspired by 1994 contestant Blanca Estela Padilla Lopez. (So far, it’s a one-hit wonder.)
  • Banelly, which debuted in 1996 with 6 baby girls. Inspired by 1996 contestant Banelly Carrasco Loya.
  • Itzanami, which debuted in 1999 with 5 baby girls. Inspired by 1999 contestant Itzanami Bermudez Sanchez.

  • Zuszeth, which debuted in 2003 with 5 baby girls. Inspired by 2003 contestant Zuszeth Luna González.

A few of the interesting Nuestra Belleza Mexico names that did not pop up on the U.S. charts are Borinquen, Irantzu and Suslim.

It doesn’t end there, though!

The Mexican show inspired a U.S. version, Nuestra Belleza Latina. It’s much newer — season 6 just ended — but so far it’s had a much bigger impact on U.S. baby names.

Name debuts that can be attributed to Nuestra Belleza Latina include…

  • Madelis, which debuted in 2007 with 30 baby girls. Inspired by 2007 contestant Madelis Soto.
  • Raengel, which debuted in 2007 with 22 baby girls. Inspired by 2007 contestant Raengel Solis.
  • Aideliz, which debuted in 2008 with 91 baby girls. Inspired by 2008 contestant Aideliz Hidalgo. It was the top debut name of 2008. The names Aidelis, Aydeliz and Aydelis also debuted in 2008.
  • Emeraude, which debuted in 2008 with 34 baby girls. Inspired by 2008 contestant Emeraude Toubia.
  • (Dayami didn’t debut, but usage increased significantly in 2008 due to contestant Dayami Padron. The name Dayamy did debut, though.)
  • Greidys, which debuted in 2009 with 186 baby girls. Inspired by 2009 contestant Greidys Gil. It was the top debut name of 2009. The names Greydis, Greidy, Greidis, Greydi, Greydys, Graidys, Greydy and Gradys also debuted in 2009.
  • Chastelyn, which debuted in 2009 with 150 baby girls. Inspired by 2009 contestant Chastelyn Rodriguez. It was the 2nd-highest debut of 2009. The names Chastelin, Shastelyn, Chasteline, Chastelyne and Shastelin also debuted in 2009.
  • Rossibell, which debuted in 2010 with 17 baby girls. Inspired by 2010 contestant Rossibell Mateo.
  • Gredmarie, which debuted in 2011 with 47 baby girls. Inspired by 2011 contestant Gredmarie Colon.
  • Jocell, which debuted in 2011 with 31 baby girls. Inspired by 2011 contestant Jocell Villa.
  • Adrialys, which debuted in 2011 with 16 baby girls. Inspired by 2011 contestant Adrialys Gutierrez.

Finally, here are two unique names from the 2012 season we might see on the SSA’s 2012 list: Lidislay and Essined.

Update, 1/2021: Setareh got a boost in 2012 thanks to contestant Setareh Khatibi; Essined debuted in 2013 because of contestant Essined Aponte; Aleyda got a boost in 2014 from contestant Aleyda Ortiz; Gloricely debuted in 2015 because of contestant Gloricely Loug; Nadyalee debuted in 2015 from contestant Nadyalee Torres.
