After posting about the name Zia a few weeks ago, I thought it would be cool to look for other baby names with the same construction (consonant + –ia) in the SSA’s dataset.
Turns out, nearly all permutations have appeared in the data at some point. Here’s the full list, ordered by 2018 popularity levels:
- Mia (currently the 7th most popular name for baby girls)
- Lia (246th)
- Gia (386th)
- Nia (474th)
- Sia (1,344th)
- Tia (1,423rd)
- Zia (1,549th)
- Jia (1,948th)
- Pia (2,048th)
- Ria (2,193rd)
- Dia (3,848th)
- Via (4,104th)
- Xia (5,262nd)
- Fia (5,819th)
- Kia (7,207th)
- Bia (13,983rd)
- Cia (currently unlisted)
- Yia (currently unlisted)
The only consonants I couldn’t find with an –ia ending were H, Q and W. (But I did happen to notice one –ia named that started with a vowel: Aia.)
Which of the above –ia names do you like best? Why?
