The Top Baby Name Debuts, 1881 to Today

the top U.S. baby name debuts

Though vast majority of the baby names on the Social Security Administration’s yearly baby name lists are repeats, every list does contain a handful of brand-new names.

Below are the highest-charting debut names for every single year on record, after the first.

Why bother with an analysis like this? Because debut names often have cool stories behind them, and high-hitting debuts are especially likely to have intriguing pop culture explanations. So not only is this a list of names, but it’s also a list of stories.

Here’s the format: “Girl name(s), number of baby girls; Boy name(s), number of baby boys.” Keep in mind that the raw numbers aren’t too trustworthy for about the first six decades, though. (More on that in a minute.)

  • 1935: Treasure, 16; Haile, 11
  • 1936: Shelva, 89; Renny & Shelva, 9

This is where the numbers start becoming more accurate. Why? Because “many people born before 1937 never applied for a Social Security card, so their names are not included in our data.” (SSA)

*If you ignore the Great Baby Name Glitch of 1989, the top debut names of 1989 are actually Audreanna and Khiry.

How many babies is that in total? More than 5,700 8,600 9,100 10,400.

And I’m sure that’s not all. Other fragrance names are harder to figure out, though. For instance, names like Aramis, Imari, Jovan, Stetson and Tasha were surely helped out by the corresponding fragrances, even though they existed beforehand. And names like Armani and Fendi could have been inspired by fragrances, or they could have been inspired by something else associated with those particular fashion houses.

Can you think of any other perfumes that might have been used as baby names? Let me know and I’ll look them up!
