Baby Names for The Birds – Tippi, Pleshette

Last month, HBO aired an original movie called The Girl.

I didn’t see it, but the reviews tell me it was about the relationship between director Alfred Hitchcock and actress Nathalie Kay “Tippi” Hedren, who starred in two of Hitchcock’s movies, The Birds (1963) and Marnie (1964).

And that reminded me–both of these Hitchcock films had an effect on baby names in the 1960s.

The Birds inspired two SSA debuts: Tippi and Pleshette (from the surname of fellow Birds actress Suzanne Pleshette).

Tippi debuted in 1963:

  • 1962 – not listed
  • 1963 – 6 baby girls named Tippi [debut]
  • 1964 – 10 baby girls named Tippi
  • 1965 – 12 baby girls named Tippi
  • 1966 – 8 baby girls named Tippi

And Pleshette debuted a year later:

  • 1962 – not listed
  • 1963 – not listed
  • 1964 – 7 baby girls named Pleshette [debut]
  • 1965 – not listed
  • 1966 – 9 baby girls named Pleshette

Tippi was off the list again by the mid-1970s, and Pleshette hung on until the late 1980s.

Marnie wasn’t behind any debuts, but it did increase the popularity of the name Marnie:

  • 1962 – 30 baby girls named Marnie
  • 1963 – 38 baby girls named Marnie
  • 1964 – 112 baby girls named Marnie
  • 1965 – 267 baby girls named Marnie [rank: 584th]
  • 1966 – 245 baby girls named Marnie [rank: 606th]
  • 1967 – 252 baby girls named Marnie [rank: 600th]
  • 1968 – 446 baby girls named Marnie [rank: 456th]
  • 1969 – 510 baby girls named Marnie [rank: 427th]
  • 1970 – 432 baby girls named Marnie [rank: 432nd]

Marnie fell out of the top 1,000 in 1978. In 2011, just 16 baby girls were named Marnie.
