Unique American Baby Names of 2009 (Boys’ Edition)

A couple of weeks ago, I published lists baby boy names and baby girl names that ranked outside of the SSA’s official top 1,000, but were still given to 100+ babies in the U.S. in 2009.

Since then, I’ve had time to peruse the rest of the names on the SSA’s full list–those 12,811 boy names and 17,993 girl names given to at least five but no more than 99 babies last year.

Here are some highlights from the boys’ list:

On to the girl names


More from England and Wales – Honey and Brandon-Lee

Here are two names that piqued my interest as I read through the baby name rankings for England and Wales yesterday.

Honey
Honey was the 190th most popular baby girl name on the list. Parents have also been using alternative spellings of Honey, and throwing (pouring?) Honey into compound names. Here are all the Honeys I spotted:

  • Honey (278 babies)
  • Honey-Rose (8)
  • Honey-May (6)
  • Hunnie (6)
  • Honey-Mae (4)
  • Hunni (4)
  • Hunny (4)
  • Honey-Marie (3)

They honey-names don’t even account for a tenth of a percent of all the baby girls in the data set, so I wouldn’t call them trendy. But they’re definitely on the radar.

Can’t say I’m on board with Honey. To me, honey is either a term of endearment or something I use in my tea. I like it for dogs and cats, but not for humans. (Would make a great stripper name, though.)

Honey has never charted here in the U.S., but I have seen it on birth announcements before.

Brandon-Lee
Lee was a very common second element in compound names for both genders. Despite this, I’d bet at least a few of the baby Brandon-Lees I saw were named specifically for Brandon Lee, the actor who died while filming cult favorite The Crow (1994). Here are the numbers:

  • Brandon-Lee (23 babies)
  • Brandonlee (4)
  • Brandon-Leigh (3)

The only “-Lee” names to rank higher than Brandon-Lee were Jayden-Lee (29), Harvey-Lee (26), and Tommy-Lee (26).
