Interesting One-Hit Wonder Baby Names

They came, they went, and they never came back!

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!)

P.S. If this content looks familiar, that’s because you’ve seen it before! I’ve just put it in a new spot. :)

Where did the baby name Condredge come from?

condredge holloway, 1974, football, baby name, sports

The name Condredge has appeared in the U.S. baby name data just once, 1974:

  • 1976: unlisted
  • 1975: unlisted
  • 1974: 5 baby boys named Condredge [debut]
  • 1973: unlisted
  • 1972: unlisted

Where did it come from?

College football player Condredge Holloway, Jr., who was the starting quarterback for the University of Tennessee for three seasons: 1972, 1973, and 1974. (He began college just a year before the NCAA’s 1972 decision to allow freshman football players to play on varsity teams.)

He was also the first black quarterback to play in the Southeastern Conference.

Condredge Holloway was originally from Alabama, and both the University of Alabama and Auburn University tried to recruit him, but “[n]either wanted him as a quarterback.”

Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant was brutally frank with him, admitting Alabama wasn’t ready for a black quarterback.

In fact, Tennessee was the only school that gave him the opportunity to play that position. He led the Tennessee Volunteers to three bowl games and ended up with an overall record of 25-9-2.

He was named after his father, Condredge Holloway, Sr., but I’m not sure how his father came to have the name. (His paternal grandfather was named Arthur, incidentally.)
