Popular Boy Names: Biblical vs. Non-Biblical

How has the ratio of Biblical names to non-Biblical names changed over time (if at all) among the most popular baby names in the U.S.?

This question popped into my head recently, so I thought I’d take a look at the data. We’ll do boy names today and girl names tomorrow.

First, let’s set some parameters. For these posts, “Biblical” names are personal names (belonging to either humans or archangels) mentioned in the Bible, plus all derivatives of these names, plus any other name with a specifically Biblical origin (e.g., Jordan, Sharon, Genesis). The “most popular” names are the top 20, and “over time” is the span of a century.

For boy names, the ratio of Biblical names to non-Biblical names has basically flipped over the last 100 years. Here’s a visual — Biblical names are in the yellow cells, non-Biblical names are in the green cells, and a borderline name (which I counted as non-Biblical) is in the orange cell:

  • Biblical names: Adam, Alexander, Andrew, Austin (via Augustus), Benjamin, Daniel, David, Elijah, Ethan, Jack (via John), Jackson (via John), Jacob, James, Jason, John, Jonathan, Joseph, Joshua, Justin (via Justus), Lucas, Mark, Matthew, Michael, Nathan, Nicholas, Noah, Paul, Stephen, Steven, Thomas, Timothy, Zachary
  • Non-Biblical names: Aiden, Albert, Anthony, Arthur, Billy, Brandon, Brian, Charles, Christopher, Dennis, Donald, Dylan, Edward, Eric, Frank, Gary, George, Harold, Harry, Henry, Jayden, Jeffrey, Kenneth, Kevin, Larry, Liam, Logan, Louis, Mason, Raymond, Richard, Robert, Ronald, Ryan, Scott, Tyler, Walter, William
  • Borderline name: Jerry (can be based on the Biblical name Jeremy/Jeremiah or on the non-Biblical names Jerome, Gerald, Gerard)
    • It felt strange putting an overtly Christian name like Christopher in the non-Biblical category, but it doesn’t appear anywhere in the Bible, so…that’s where it goes.

      Here are the year-by-year tallies:

      Year Top 20 names
      given to…
      # Biblical # Non-Biblical
      1914 40% of baby boys 5 (25%) 15 (75%)
      1924 43% of baby boys 6 (30%) 14 (70%)
      1934 43% of baby boys 7 (35%) 13 (65%)
      1944 47% of baby boys 7 (35%) 13 (65%)
      1954 46% of baby boys 11 (55%) 9 (45%)
      1964 42% of baby boys 11 (55%) 9 (45%)
      1974 38% of baby boys 11 (55%) 9 (45%)
      1984 36% of baby boys 14 (70%) 6 (30%)
      1994 27% of baby boys 14 (70%) 6 (30%)
      2004 19% of baby boys 14 (70%) 6 (30%)
      2014 14% of baby boys 14 (70%) 6 (30%)

      But there’s a huge difference between sample sizes of 40% and 14%, so let’s also take a look at the 2014 top 100, which covers 42% of male births.

      By my count, last year’s top 100 boy names were half Biblical, half non-Biblical:

      Biblical names (49) Non-Biblical names (51)
      Noah, Jacob, Ethan, Michael, Alexander, James, Daniel, Elijah, Benjamin, Matthew, Jackson (via John), David, Lucas, Joseph, Andrew, Samuel, Gabriel, Joshua, John, Luke, Isaac, Caleb, Nathan, Jack (via John), Jonathan, Levi, Jaxon (via John), Julian (via Julius), Isaiah, Eli, Aaron, Thomas, Jordan, Jeremiah, Nicholas, Evan, Josiah, Austin (via Augustus), Jace (via Jason), Jason, Jose, Ian, Adam, Zachary, Jaxson (via John), Asher, Nathaniel, Justin (via Justus), Juan Liam, Mason, William, Logan, Aiden, Jayden, Anthony, Carter, Dylan, Christopher, Oliver, Henry, Sebastian, Owen, Ryan, Wyatt, Hunter, Christian, Landon, Charles, Connor, Cameron, Adrian, Gavin, Robert, Brayden, Grayson, Colton, Angel, Dominic, Kevin, Brandon, Tyler, Parker, Ayden, Chase, Hudson, Nolan, Easton, Blake, Cooper, Lincoln, Xavier, Bentley, Kayden, Carson, Brody, Ryder, Leo, Luis, Camden

      (Christian, Angel, Xavier, Dominic…all technically non-Biblical, despite having strong ties to Christianity.)

      50%-50% isn’t quite as extreme as 70%-30%, but it’s still noticeably more Biblical than 1914’s 25%-75%.

      Do any of these results surprise you?


Liverpool Fans Name Baby Girl YNWA

ynwa logo liverpool
YNWA: New baby name for Liverpool fans?
Norwegian couple Tor-Eric and Eirin Iversen, big fans of Liverpool F.C. (the English soccer team), welcomed a baby girl back in 2010 and named her Karoline Ynwa.

The middle name Ynwa is an acronym that stands for “You’ll Never Walk Alone” — the song that was adopted as Liverpool’s anthem in the 1960s. It originally comes from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel (1945).

Tor-Eric and Eirin weren’t sure about the name Ynwa (which they pronounce “yee-nwa”) at first, but it grew on them over time. Before Ynwa they’d considered the name Gerrard (for Steven Gerrard) but decided that Gerrard wouldn’t work well for a girl.

Pål Christian Møller, head of Liverpool FC Supporters Club Norway, says the Liverpool-inspired baby name he sees most often is simply “Liverpool.” (He said if he could give himself another name, he’d add Oliver and become “O Liverpål.”) Another acronym-based Liverpool name he’s seen is Tia, which stands for “this is Anfield.” Anfield is the stadium at which Liverpool F.C. has been playing since the 1890s.

Now that news of a child named Ynwa has surfaced, do you think Liverpool fans in England will start using the name? And, if so, do you think Ynwa will ever reach the minimum usage requirement of 3 babies per year to be included on a future England and Wales baby name list?

Sources: Ynwa (4) fikk ikke velge favorittlag selv, Liverpool FC fans from Norway name their daughter YNWA (discovered originally via Clare’s Name News)

P.S. Other modern-day acronym baby names include Ily, Ilys & Ktyal. I’ve also heard rumors that the baby name Yolo now exists, but I have yet to see proof of this.

The Baby Name Roni

The movie-inspired baby name Rawnie from a few weeks ago reminded me of the baby names Roni and Roni Sue, neither of which I’ve posted about yet. So today let’s check out Roni, which saw a spike in usage in the mid-1950s:

  • 1958: 89 baby girls named Roni
  • 1957: 94 baby girls named Roni
  • 1956: 134 baby girls named Roni (ranked 864th)
  • 1955: 295 baby girls named Roni (ranked 536th)
  • 1954: 70 baby girls named Roni
  • 1953: 49 baby girls named Roni

What was the cause?

A feel-good news story about a 17-month-old Greek orphan named Roni Marie. She was being adopted by childless Texas couple Norman and Helen Donahoe in very early 1955. (This is how the story managed to slightly increase the usage of Roni among 1954 babies.)

Norman, a Navy lieutenant, “took his Christmas leave to hitchhike to Athens for the brown eyed foundling.” He spent 3 weeks in Greece finalizing the adoption.

Once Roni was his, the pair set off on the return trip, which lasted from January 8 to January 13.

“Roni Marie’s trip to the U.S. became somewhat of a diaper derby for Lieutenant Donahoe…he was rapidly running out of disposable diapers and he worried about the dwindling supply. But he was able to add to his diaper stock during a stopover in Morocco.”

LIFE Magazine, a little late to the party, printed a short blurb about the Donahoes on January 24.

So how do you feel about the name Roni? Do you like it any more or less than Rawnie?

P.S. A follow-up article published in 1961 revealed that Norman and Helen had gone on to adopt one more Greek orphan, Steven, and then have two biological children, Eloni [sic?] and Donald. (I’m assuming Eloni’s name was really Eleni, which is a Greek form of Helen.)

P.P.S. This story reminds me of both Stephen Dondi Thomas and Tyechia Reid.

3 Baby Names in the News

Three quick stories from the news:

1. In February, paramedics in Oceanside, California, helped save the life of a baby boy born seven weeks early and without a heartbeat. The baby was given the first name Zavier and the two middle names Stephan and Morgan, in honor of paramedic Steven Choi and fire Capt. Glen Morgan.

2. In April, police officer Nelson Hearns of Canford, New Jersey, responded to a call regarding a sick pregnant woman. He ended up delivering a baby boy in the woman’s living room. The baby was given the first name Kase and the middle name Nelson.

3. Also in April, doctor Michelle Kennedy was walking through Hackney (part of London) when she happened to come across a woman in labor inside a car parked on the roadside. She ended up delivering the baby in the front seat of the woman’s VW Polo. The baby was given the first name Oriana and the middle name Kennedy.

Someone Fact-Checks a Baby Name Claim, Finally

Univision anchor Jorge Ramos was a guest on the Daily Show a few weeks ago. While talking to host Jon Stewart about the growing Latino population in the U.S., Ramos claimed that “the most popular name is no longer John or Steven. It’s Jose, Camilo and Maria of course.”

Now, the Daily Show is a comedy show — Ramos also joked there’d be “more tortillas than hamburger buns” thanks to the changing demographic — but the people at PunditFact were curious enough about Ramos’s offhand name claim to do some digging.

First they got in touch with Ramos. He said he’d been speaking with “states like California and Texas in mind, not so much the entire United States. And he thought he was talking about which names were more popular (as a comparison), not the most popular overall.”

Then PunditFact checked the SSA data — you can see all the details in their Truth-o-Meter post about Ramos’s claim.

Their conclusion?

Ramos said that the most popular names are no longer John or Steven, but Jose, Camilo and Maria. Afterward, Ramos said he was thinking of states with large Hispanic populations.

With that caveat, he has a bit of a point. In states with the highest percentage of Hispanics, Jose beats out John and Steven. Camilo and Maria are not really contenders. None of these names are the most popular in any state.

We rate the claim Mostly False.

“Mostly False” — nice!

A lot of media people don’t bother to check baby name-related claims, even though the facts are easy to find. Kudos to PunditFact for calling Ramos out on this one.

The Name Your Car Formula, for Name Your Car Day

name your car day

Did you know that October 2 is Name Your Car Day?

Some people have no problem coming up with names for their cars. The car in the above photo, for instance, is clearly named Gianni.

But not everyone has it so easy. For those who don’t have a clue which name to choose, here’s a simple formula I came up with.

The Name Your Car Formula

Answer three quick questions:

  • What year was your car made?
  • To you, what gender is the car?
  • At what age did you get the car?

Now check your region’s baby name rankings. If you’re in the U.S., you can find the national rankings on the Popular Baby Names page of the Social Security Administration’s website. (I’ve got all the U.S. rankings from 2000 onward here at NBN.) If you’re in England, the rankings are on the Baby Names page of the Office for National Statistics website. If you’re in Ireland, try a search at the Central Statistics Office website. For other regions, look at Wikipedia’s Popular Names page. (Use the links in the footnotes.)

Find the set of rankings that corresponds to your car’s YEAR and GENDER. Then scroll down until you find the ranking that matches the AGE at which you got the car. The name with that ranking is now the name of your car.

Want to see how it works? Here are a bunch of examples (using U.S. name rankings):

  • You have a 2009 Nissan Altima. To you, the car is female. You got it at the age of 33. So you go to the 2009 girl name rankings, scroll down to #33, and find the name Gabriella.
  • You have a 1998 Toyota Camry. To you, the car is female. You got it at the age of 44. So you go to the 1998 girl name rankings, scroll down to #44, and find the name Savannah.
  • You have a 1973 Dodge Dart. To you, the car is male. You got it at the age of 20. So you go to the 1973 boy name rankings, scroll down to #20, and find the name Steven.
  • You have a 2011 Lincoln Navigator. To you, the car is male. You got it at the age of 51. So you go to the 2011 boy name rankings, scroll down to #51, and find the name Jeremiah.
