Were Any Babies Named After Yvaine from Stardust?

In 2007 I wondered, “Could Yvaine become a popular baby name if Stardust does well at the box office?”

Three years later, I can (sort of) answer that question. See, the movie Stardust didn’t exactly turn into blockbuster. But it did reasonably well. And in 2008, Yvaine appeared on the SSA’s official baby name list for the very first time:

  • 2009: 13 baby girls named Yvaine
  • 2008: 8 baby girls named Yvaine [debut]
  • 2007: unlisted

So the name didn’t become “popular,” but it’s more popular now than it used to be, relatively speaking. My hunch is that if Stardust had done better at the theaters, Yvaine would have popped up on more birth certificates.

The name of the movie itself didn’t make the list in 2008 or 2009, but it did make the list in 1977 –just once. Five baby girls were named Stardust that year. I’m not sure why, though. Seems too late to be a Ziggy Stardust thing. Any ideas?
