The Baby Name Tyechia

Gussie and Tyechia
In mid-1982, a little girl named Tyechia Reid was making headlines.

She was two-and-a-half years old, and her 63-year-old foster mother, Gussie Alexis, was fighting to adopt her.

Gussie, who had raised Tyechia since infancy and had weaned her from a heroin addiction, was ordered in June to surrender Tyechia. The adoption agency told her she was too old to adopt.

Gussie refused. Instead, she fought the adoption agency all summer. Finally, in September, she won custody of the little girl.

Thanks to this ongoing (and heart-warming) news story, the baby name Tyechia became the top debut name of 1982 with 71 baby girls:

  • 1988: not listed
  • 1987: 5 baby girls named Tyechia
  • 1986: 6 baby girls named Tyechia
  • 1985: 11 baby girls named Tyechia
  • 1984: 10 baby girls named Tyechia
  • 1983: 53 baby girls named Tyechia (and 6 more named Tyecha)
  • 1982: 71 baby girls named Tyechia [debut]
  • 1981: not listed

It stayed on the SSA’s baby name list until the late 1980s, but hasn’t been back since. Spelling variant Tyecha was a one-hit wonder.
