Drene, The Shampoo-Inspired Baby Name

The first and only time the baby name Drene made it onto the SSA’s list was 1946:

  • 1947: unlisted
  • 1946: 6 baby girls named Drene [debut]
  • 1945: unlisted

Drene Shampoo The inspiration?

Drene shampoo…kind of.

Drene, the first shampoo to use synthetic detergent instead of soap, had been introduced by Procter & Gamble in 1934. So the product had been on the market for more than a decade by the mid-1940s.

What drew people’s attention to Drene in 1946 specifically, then?

“Drene Time,” a late-night radio variety show sponsored by Procter & Gamble. The 30-minute program, which featured singing and comedy, is where the sketch comedy series The Bickersons (starring Don Ameche and Frances Langford) got its start.

“Drene Time” only lasted from mid-1946 to mid-1947, but that gave it enough time to influence the baby name charts, if only slightly.

Drene shampoo continued to be sold until the 1970s, at which point P&G stopped production in the U.S.
