Once upon a time, MTV played music videos. (Crazy, I know!) And, during that era — in 1993 and 1994 specifically — one of the videos they aired a lot was the video for Danzig’s song “Mother ’93.”
“Mother ’93” became Danzig’s highest-charting single, peaking at #43 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 in April of 1994. The same year, we see the baby name Danzig pop up for the first time on the SSA’s baby name list:
1993: not listed
1994: 7 baby boys with the name Danzig [debut]
1995: not listed
The heavy metal band takes its name from vocalist Glenn Danzig. Glenn was born with the surname Anzalone; I’m not sure why he chose Danzig (the German name of the Polish city Gdansk) for his stage name.
The baby name Danzig disappeared from the national list for a few years, but has since reappeared (just like other ’90s alt-rock names). Last year, 5 baby boys were named Danzig.
