Mystery Monday: The Name Staria

The name Staria debuted rather impressively in 1955 with 20 baby girls:

  • 1958: unlisted
  • 1957: 9 baby girls named Staria
  • 1956: 15 baby girls named Staria
  • 1955: 20 baby girls named Staria [debut]
  • 1954: unlisted
  • 1954: unlisted

So far, I haven’t been able to figure out why. None of the other Star- names (like Starla or Starlet) shot up in usage from 1954 to 1955, and the only pop culture “Staria” I can find was an Australian comic strip character introduced in 1980 — wrong place, wrong time.

The one clue I can offer is this: I found birth records for about half of the 1955 Starias, and all of those births happened during the second half of the year (July to December). So we could be looking for some mid-year event.

Any ideas on this one?
