The Baby Name Pharrell – Trendy Again?

Happy album, Pharrell WilliamsPharrell Williams rose to fame in 2003 with his first big hit, “Frontin’.” That year, the baby name Pharrell debuted impressively on the SSA’s baby name list:

  • 2013: 16 baby boys named Pharrell
  • 2012: 10 baby boys named Pharrell
  • 2011: 14 baby boys named Pharrell
  • 2010: 18 baby boys named Pharrell
  • 2009: 16 baby boys named Pharrell

  • 2005: 31 baby boys named Pharrell
  • 2004: 44 baby boys named Pharrell
  • 2003: 67 baby boys named Pharrell [debut]
  • 2002: unlisted

Not only was the name Pharrell the top debut name of 2003, but it was also the 21st most popular debut name of all time on the boys’ list. (Variant Pharell had debuted the previous year.)

Pharrell Williams — who has a dad named Pharaoh and a son named Rocket, incidentally — has been on the scene ever since, but 2013 and 2014 were particularly big years for him, with the success of the songs “Blurred Lines” and “Happy” and his new gig as a judge on The Voice.

Usage of the name cooled off after 2003, but there was a slight increase in 2013. Do you think Williams’ ongoing exposure will boost the name even higher in 2014?
