Mystery Baby Name – Toshiba

I haven’t blogged about a mystery name in a while, so let’s try this one…

The baby name Toshiba debuted on the SSA’s baby name list in 1974 with 58 baby girls:

  • 1978: 40 baby girls named Toshiba
  • 1977: 38 baby girls named Toshiba
  • 1976: 26 baby girls named Toshiba
  • 1975: 35 baby girls named Toshiba
  • 1974: 58 baby girls named Toshiba [debut]
  • 1973: unlisted

Toshiba logoIn terms of the biggest girl name debuts of all time, Toshiba landed just outside the top 50, tied with Siobhan for 53rd.

The variants Tashiba and Tosheba also debuted in 1974, while Tasheba debuted a year earlier.

Now, Toshiba is a brand name. We all know that.

But something tells me that the company/brand didn’t have anything to do with the baby name.

The Japanese company Toshiba has been around for well over a century, it’s been exporting goods (transistors, TVs, ovens, etc.) to the U.S. since long before ’70s, and there wasn’t some big advertising push in 1973/1974.

The brand is so well-established, though, that my internet searches aren’t letting me see anything but the brand. So I can’t get past it to see what the real answer might be.

Was Toshiba a character in a ’70s TV show (like Ibe/Ebay)? Maybe a long-forgotten musician or actor?

Do you have any ideas?
