Interesting one-hit wonder names in the U.S. baby name data

They came, they went, and they never came back!

These baby names are one-hit wonders in the U.S. baby name data. That is, they’ve only popped up once, ever, in the entire dataset of U.S. baby names (which accounts for all names given to at least 5 U.S. babies per year since 1880).

There are thousands of one-hit wonders in the dataset, but the names below have interesting stories behind their single appearance, so these are the one-hits I’m writing specific posts about. Just click on a name to read more.

Where did the baby name Verree come from in 1934?

The very rare name Verree appeared for the first time in the U.S. baby name data in the mid-1930s:

  • 1936: unlisted
  • 1935: 6 baby girls named Verree
  • 1934: 5 baby girls named Verree [debut]
  • 1933: unlisted
  • 1932: unlisted

The similar name Veree also popped up in 1934 (and never came back, making it a one-hit wonder).

What was the influence? American actress Verree Teasdale, who appeared on stage and in films during the second quarter of the 20th century, particularly the 1930s.

I can’t pinpoint where her name came from, but apparently people misspelled it a lot:

Since deserting Broadway for Hollywood two years ago, Verree Teasdale has made rapid strides to movie fame. Her most difficult problem has been trying to get her name spelled correctly.
