A type of acrylic fabric called Civona, which was being advertised heavily around that time. The ads often compared the feel of Civona to that of merino wool. Civona’s tagline was: “the touch-me look.”
Like Antron and Qiana, Civona was invented by DuPont. It was put on the market in 1975.
What are your thoughts on the baby name Civona?

These baby names are one-hit wonders in the U.S. baby name data. That is, they’ve only popped up once, ever, in the entire dataset of U.S. baby names (which accounts for all names given to at least 5 U.S. babies per year since 1880).
There are thousands of one-hit wonders in the dataset, but the names below have interesting stories behind their single appearance, so these are the one-hits I’m writing specific posts about. Just click on a name to read more. (Names that aren’t links yet have posts coming soon!)
