Embarrassing Baby Names.
When I first spotted Suave on the SSA’s baby name list, I immediately thought of that Gerardo song “
Rico Suave” [vid].
But that wasn’t it. The single was released in 1990, two years after Suave debuted:
1987: not listed
1988: 17 baby boys named Suave
1989: 7 baby boys named Suave
1990: 6 baby boys named Suave
1991: 8 baby boys named Suave
1992: 7 baby boys named Suave [debut]
1993: not listed
The inspiration was actually singer
Suave, who scored a top 40 hit in 1988 with his cover of The Temptations’ “My Girl.” (Nothing to do with the 1991 movie of the same name.)
The word “suave” comes from the Latin
suavis, meaning “sweet.”
