How Many Babies Got -Amari Names in 2009?

As I was looking up -ayden names a few weeks ago, I saw something that intrigued me: dozens of -amari names.

The -amaris looked a lot like the -aydens. They shared a common ending, they started with a variety of first letters, and they were given to both boys and girls. Same trendy sound, same personalized feel (i.e. pick your favorite first letter), same unisex usage.

But the -amaris weren’t as popular as the -aydens in 2009, especially for boys.

I spotted just 3,792 baby boys and 1,670 baby girls with -amari names. Compare that to over 100,000 baby boys and over 10,000 baby girls with -ayden names.

The boy -amaris accounted for just 0.18% of all boys born in 2009, and all variants combined would theoretically rank 106th for boys (between Antonio and Steven). The girl -amaris accounted for just 0.08% of all girls. Combined they would rank 193rd (tied with Eliana).

The -amaris aren’t as fashionable as the -aydens, but you never know–they could catch on, just like the -aydens did. They certainly follow a familiar pattern.

Have you encountered any babies or children with an -amari name lately?

[Disclaimer: I’m assuming all of the variants above rhyme with Amari, but I can’t make any guarantees. Also, I didn’t count variants with four syllables or variants that looked too different from -amari, such as -amori and -emari.]
