This one is a bit strange…
- 1995: unlisted
- 1994: 5 baby girls named Strange
- 1993: 12 baby girls named Strange [debut] and 6 more named Stranje [debut]
- 1992: unlisted
I’m guessing they’re meant to be pronounced stran-JAY as opposed to straynj, but who knows.
Their likeness to the word “strange” makes it difficult to track down any information online, so I’m hoping someone out there remembers a pop culture event (song, movie, TV show, etc.) from 1993 that could have inspired people to name their baby girls Strange/Stranje.
UPDATE: Rachel figured it out! It’s the character Strangé from the Eddie Murphy movie Boomerang (1992).
