Oklahoma’s most popular baby names of 2008, 2007, 2006 and 2004 can be found at the Oklahoma State Department of Health website.
The top names seem to be on par with what the SSA reports, so I won’t relist them here, but I did want to share a few of the unique names. Starting with 12-Gage.
Yup, 12-Gage. Just one letter off from 12-gauge, typically used to describe shotguns. It was bestowed in 2008.
Some of the unusual names doled out in 2007 were 7, Bluestar, Catcher-Dan, Ceyahdrieah, Ceyaydrieah, Chicago-All, Iamunique, Prettyrock, Pyro, Swostika, Tugger, Zaxs Christ and Zombrie.
Ceyahdrieah and Ceyaydrieah looked suspiciously alike, so on a whim I tried a search. I found the following explanation at a baby name message board:
Going through applications for our PreK and came across these twins:
Ceyahdrieah and Ceyaydrieh pronounced “Adreah”(andrea without the N) and Adriea (Adrien without the N). The “Cey” is silent. Mom wanted their names to look pretty.
I’ll keep an eye on that site for updates. Hopefully someone will post the top Okla. baby names of 2009 and 2010 at some point.
