Popular and Unique Baby Names by State, 2018

Sampling of baby names that appeared in the SSA state-specific baby name data for one state only.

We know what the top names in the country were last year, but what about the top names in each state? Here’s the list, released just yesterday by the SSA. I’ve also included each state’s most popular unique names (i.e., names that only appeared in the data for that particular state).

A few final thoughts…

  • I love that Aurora is now #1 in Alaska. :)
  • What’s up with Wilma in Ohio? Nine baby girls is nearly a quarter (23%) of the total national usage. Interesting.
  • One of the other unique Utah boy names was Kaladin, which comes from a character in the Stormlight Archive book series by Utah-based fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson.

How Many Babies Got -Amari Names in 2009?

As I was looking up -ayden names a few weeks ago, I saw something that intrigued me: dozens of -amari names.

The -amaris looked a lot like the -aydens. They shared a common ending, they started with a variety of first letters, and they were given to both boys and girls. Same trendy sound, same personalized feel (i.e. pick your favorite first letter), same unisex usage.

But the -amaris weren’t as popular as the -aydens in 2009, especially for boys.

I spotted just 3,792 baby boys and 1,670 baby girls with -amari names. Compare that to over 100,000 baby boys and over 10,000 baby girls with -ayden names.

The boy -amaris accounted for just 0.18% of all boys born in 2009, and all variants combined would theoretically rank 106th for boys (between Antonio and Steven). The girl -amaris accounted for just 0.08% of all girls. Combined they would rank 193rd (tied with Eliana).

The -amaris aren’t as fashionable as the -aydens, but you never know–they could catch on, just like the -aydens did. They certainly follow a familiar pattern.

Have you encountered any babies or children with an -amari name lately?

[Disclaimer: I’m assuming all of the variants above rhyme with Amari, but I can’t make any guarantees. Also, I didn’t count variants with four syllables or variants that looked too different from -amari, such as -amori and -emari.]
