81 Baby Girls Named After ThunderCat Cheetara

cheetaraOk, this one might just top MacGyver.

Did you know that babies in the mid-’80s were named for cartoon cat-lady Cheetara?

ThunderCats originally aired from 1985 through 1990. The main characters were cat-like humanoids with names like Lion-O, Tygra and Panthro.

But the main female character Cheetara — who could run with cheetah-like speed — was the only character whose name made it onto the SSA’s official list of baby names:

  • 1989: unlisted
  • 1988: 9 baby girls named Cheetara
  • 1987: 29 baby girls named Cheetara
  • 1986: 36 baby girls named Cheetara
  • 1985: 7 baby girls named Cheetara [debut]
  • 1984: unlisted

So at least 81 baby girls in the U.S. have been named after Cheetara.

And if we throw in the variant names that also debuted during this time period, the total is even higher:

What do you think about the baby name Cheetara? Would you ever consider using it? If so, would it be because of the cartoon, or in spite of it? :)
