Biggest Baby Name Debuts of the 2000s

The final installment!

We did the ’70s, the ’80s, and the ’90s, and now here are all of the “100+” debut names from the 2000s (so far).

  1. Yurem: 206 baby boys in 2007

  6. Jkwon: 100 baby boys in 2004

And here are the pop culture sources:

  • Yurem comes from Yurem Rojas, one of the winners of Mexican reality show Buscando a Timbiriche, La Nueva Banda. (The names Brissia and Taide also got a boost from this show.)
  • Greidys comes from beauty queen Greydis Gil, who was a contestant on the reality show Nuestra Belleza Latina.
  • Yaire comes from Puerto Rican singer/songwriter Yaire.
  • Jahiem comes from singer/rapper Jaheim. The correct version of his name shot up from 10 to 544 baby boys [rank: 437th] from 2000 to 2001.
  • Kelis comes from U.S. singer/songwriter Kelis, whose name is a combination of her parents’ names, Kenneth and Eveliss.
