Babies Named for Tenley Albright

Tenley Albright, 1956, ItalyThe baby name Tenley first popped up in the SSA’s baby name data in 1953:

  • 1957: 11 baby girls named Tenley
  • 1956: 25 baby girls named Tenley
  • 1955: 11 baby girls named Tenley
  • 1954: 6 baby girls named Tenley
  • 1953: 12 baby girls named Tenley [debut]
  • 1952: unlisted

The inspiration? Tenley Emma Albright (b. 1935), who overcame childhood polio to become a world-class figure skater.

She won a silver medal at the 1952 Winter Olympics, became the first “triple crown” winner (U.S., North American, and World titles) in figure skating in 1953, and won a gold medal at the 1956 Winter Olympics (the first to be televised).

After retiring from figure skating in 1956, she became a surgeon.

Where did she get her name?

“I don’t know exactly where my mother found the name Tenley. When I asked her, she said, “I just liked the sound.”

Her family is full of interesting names: father Hollis, mother Elin, and brother Nile (whose name is “Elin” spelled backwards). Her first husband was named Tudor, and her three daughters are Lilla Rhys, Elin, and Elee.

In 1965, Tenley explained her eldest daughter’s name to Sports Illustrated. She said that Lilla came from the Swedish expression Lilla Vän (“little friend”) — her mother’s childhood nickname — and that Rhys was a family name.

In July of 2014, for her 79th birthday, Tenley hosted a party for her many namesakes at the Boston Skating Club. She promoted the party via the website My Name Is Tenley. Over 60 Tenleys showed up, some coming from as far away as London and Holland. The party even featured a performance by an 11-year-old skater named (what else?) Tenley.

(And what pushed the name Tenley in the top 1,000 for the first time in 2010? A contestant named Tenley on the 14th season of The Bachelor.)

    3. Emily, 3,893
    4. Isla, 3,474
    5. Ava, 3,414
    6. Ella, 3,028
    7. Jessica, 2,937
    8. Isabella, 2,876

    7. Noah, 4,148
    8. William, 4,083
    9. Thomas, 4,075
    10. Oscar, 4,066

    In the girls’ top 10, Ella and Mia replace Lily (now 13th) and Sophie (now 11th).

    In the boys’ top 10, Noah (the top name in the U.S. right now) replace James (11th).

    In the girls’ top 100, Penelope, Mila, Clara, Arabella, Maddison and Aria replace Lydia (now 103rd), Faith (104th), Mollie (105th), Brooke (107th), Isabel (110th) and Amy (117th).

    In the boys’ top 100, Jaxon, Roman, Reggie and Carter replace Owen (now 101st), Robert (105th), Joey (117th) and Finlay (123rd).

    Here are some of last year’s rare baby names, each given to either 3, 4 or 5 babies:

    Rare Girl Names Rare Boy Names
    Aarzoo, Autumn-Lily, Boglarka, Comfort, Edna, Enxi, Euphemia, Flourish, Fozia, Gabia, Jupiter, Lady, Lleucu, Llio, Merveille, Nectaria, Pebbles, Peony, Prisca, Purity, Quorra, Reisel, Sloka, Tuba, Venice, Vimbainashe, Ylva Alffi, Bam, Bright, Crimea, Cuthbert, Efezino, Elimelech, Fyfe, Ghyll, Gryff, James-Dean, Jamesdean, Kushagra, Ignatius, Marmaduke, Math, Mio, Osagie, Otso, Pip, Przemyslaw, Sherlock, Swayley, Ringo, Testimony, Thierno, Zephyrus

    (Crimea is intriguing, isn’t it? It was used as a baby name in the 1850s, during the Crimean War, but this is the first time I’ve seen it on a modern name list.)

    And what about Welsh names?

    Welsh Girl Names Welsh Boy Names
    • Seren (“star”) ranks 17th in Wales
    • Ffion (“foxglove”), 20th
    • Megan, 27th

    Male Names in the Domesday Book

    Male Names in the Domesday Book

    I listed all the female names in the Domesday Book a while back, so today I thought I’d complete the project by listing all the male names.

    The male names below appeared in the Open Domesday database just once, except where noted. (For the record, I overlooked entries in which one person’s name was used to refer to another person, e.g., “Aelfric’s uncle.”)

    The most-mentioned name within each letter group is in bold.

    If you make it all the way to the bottom, your reward is a top ten list. :)

    Top Ten Male Names

    Which male were mentioned most often in the Domesday book? The #1 name was William, followed by Robert and Ralph:

    1. William (166)
    2. Robert (127)
    3. Ralph (124)
    4. Aelfric (88)
    5. Alwin (76)
    5. Hugh (76)
    7. Roger (73)
    8. Godwin (72)
    9. Walter (64)
    10. Godric (59)

    Though the names in the book aren’t necessarily representative of name usage in England overall, it does make sense than William took the top spot. The Domesday Book was created a couple of decades after the Norman Invasion, at a time when the name William was very fashionable, thanks to William the Conqueror.

    The Top Baby Name Debuts, 1881 to Today

    the top U.S. baby name debuts

    Though vast majority of the baby names on the Social Security Administration’s yearly baby name lists are repeats, every list does contain a handful of brand-new names.

    Below are the highest-charting debut names for every single year on record, after the first.

    Why bother with an analysis like this? Because debut names often have cool stories behind them, and high-hitting debuts are especially likely to have intriguing pop culture explanations. So not only is this a list of names, but it’s also a list of stories.

    Here’s the format: “Girl name(s), number of baby girls; Boy name(s), number of baby boys.” Keep in mind that the raw numbers aren’t too trustworthy for about the first six decades, though. (More on that in a minute.)

    This is where the numbers start becoming more accurate. Why? Because “many people born before 1937 never applied for a Social Security card, so their names are not included in our data.” (SSA)

    I’ve already written about some of the names above, and I plan to write about all the others as well…eventually. In the meanwhile, if you want to beat me to it and leave a comment about why Maverick hit in 1957, or why Moesha hit in 1996, feel free!

    *If you ignore the Great Baby Name Glitch of 1989, the top debut names of 1989 are actually Audreanna and Khiry.

    The Mysterious Baby Name LaQuita

    When the popularity of a particular baby name spikes, there’s always an explanation.

    Most of the time, the explanation isn’t hard to come up with. Hundreds of baby girls were named Rhiannon after Fleetwood Mac’s Rhiannon was released in 1976, dozens of baby boys were named Rambo after the Rambo movies started coming out in the early 1980s, and so forth.

    Sometimes, the explanation isn’t as conspicuous. I didn’t immediately see the connection between the name Aquanette and B-movie actress Burnu Acquanetta, for instance. Only after mulling it over for a while was I able to link the name Kasara to a long-forgotten Lisa Lisa song.

    Today’s name belongs in that latter group. In fact, the explanation for today’s name is *so* inconspicuous that I haven’t been able to piece it together, even after months of trying.

    So I’m giving up. I’m just going to post what I know and hope that some wise soul leaves a comment that helps me unravel the mystery. :)

    The name is Laquita. (It’s often written LaQuita in obituaries.) It debuted on the SSA’s baby name list in 1930, coming out of nowhere to be given to an impressive 68 baby girls that year.

    Now, the number 68 might seem trivial. Today’s most popular names are given to tens of thousands of babies each, after all. As far as newbie names go, though, 68 is huge. Especially when you’re talking about the early 20th century. Here’s some context:

    • Top debut names of 1926: Narice, 13; Bibb, 15
    • Top debut names of 1927: Sunya, 14; Bidwell, 14
    • Top debut names of 1928: Joreen, 22; Alfread & Brevard, 9
    • Top debut names of 1929: Jeannene, 26; Donnald, Edsol, Rhys & Wolfgang, 8
    • Top debut names of 1930: Laquita, 68; Shogo, 11
    • Top debut names of 1931: Joanie, 12; Rockne, 17
    • Top debut names of 1932: Carolann, Delano & Jenine, 11; Alvyn, Avelardo, Elena, Mannon & Wenford, 7
    • Top debut names of 1933: Gayleen, 23; Skippy, 10
    • Top debut names of 1934: Carollee & Janean, 12; Franchot, 9

    Laquita jumped into the top 1,000 right away, ranking 874th. It remained there for the next three years.

    Here’s a final fact that could be helpful. Of the 25 1930-Laquitas listed in the SSDI so far, most were born during the last half of the year — 2 in May, 3 in June, 3 in July, 5 in August, 5 in September, 3 in October, 1 in November, 3 in December. This may mean that a mid-year event triggered the spike.
