Back when I was writing about the baby name Twiggy I happened upon the one-hit wonder baby name Twig:
1955: 5 baby boys named Twig [debut]
Where did it come from? A short-lived TV sitcom called Professional Father, which aired on CBS from January to July, 1955. The central characters were Tom Wilson, his wife Helen, and their kids Kathryn, known as “Kit,” and Tom Jr., known as “Twig.”
The show was a mid-season replacement for another sitcom called That’s My Boy. It was replaced in the fall by Gunsmoke, which went on to become the longest-running western in TV history.
What do you think of the baby name Twig? (How about “Twig” as a nickname for Thomas?)
