chubby-checker-albumChubby Checker was born Ernest Evans, so, for him, Chubby was a nickname. But when Chubby Checker was at the height of his fame, Chubby became the legal first name of over a dozen baby boys:

  • 1964: unlisted
  • 1963: 5 baby boys named Chubby
  • 1962: 9 baby boys named Chubby [debut]
  • 1961: unlisted

Other babies got the variant Chubbie, a one-hit wonder in 1962:

  • 1964: unlisted
  • 1963: unlisted
  • 1962: 5 baby boys named Chubbie [debut]

While these are the only years the name appeared on the SSA’s baby name list, baby boys had been getting the name Chubby long before this. The Social Security Death Index (SSDI) currently lists 19 Chubbys and 3 Chubbies born before 1960, for instance.
