Would You Name Your Baby “Maeby”?

Last week’s post on Yan Ebyam reminded me of Maeby, which has appeared on the SSA’s baby name list three times so far:

  • 2010: 8 baby girls named Maeby
  • 2009: unlisted
  • 2008: 7 baby girls named Maeby
  • 2007: unlisted
  • 2006: 6 baby girls named Maeby [debut]
  • 2005: unlisted

It debuted the last year Arrested Development was on the air, which is notable because the sitcom featured a teenage character named Maeby F√ľnke.

According to Wikipedia

Creator Mitchell Hurwitz named the character after his daughters Maisy and Phoebe. Hurwitz acknowledged the peculiar result of this blending, saying “It just seemed like crazy extra fun to think of weird names. I don’t want us to become too self-conscious about it but, yes, we do have some strange names.” Incidentally, she is often described as George Michael’s “Cousin Maeby,” a play on words making reference to the fact that they may not be related.

Maeby’s teenage counterpart on the show, George Michael Bluth, didn’t had the same impact on the baby name charts; the compound name Georgemichael/George-Michael hasn’t been on the SSA’s list since pop singer George Michael was popular back in the ’90s.
