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 Chadyeane come from in 1924?

The curious name Chadyeane was a one-hit wonder in the U.S. baby name data in the mid-1920s:

  • 1926: unlisted
  • 1925: unlisted
  • 1924: 5 baby girls named Chadyeane
  • 1923: unlisted
  • 1922: unlisted

Where did it come from?

The name’s unusual spelling led me right away to a silent film called Born Rich, which was released in December of 1924. The movie’s main characters were a wealthy couple named James “Jimmie” and Chadyeane “Chad” Fairfax.

Digging through the records, though, I found extra information. First, as expected, more than five baby girls born in the U.S. in 1924 were named Chadyeane. (The total is closer to ten.) Second, unexpectedly, just about all of those 1924 Chadyeanes were born earlier in the year — in some cases, much earlier.

As it turns out, the movie was based on a novel of the same name by Hughes Cornell. And the novel had been serialized in the newspapers toward the beginning of 1924. So it’s far more likely that the influence in this case was the literary character, not the movie character.

I don’t know how Chad’s full first name is pronounced, but it seems to be based on a French surname that can be spelled various ways (e.g., Chadeayne, Chadeyane, Chadeyne).

What are your thoughts on this name? How would you pronounce it?
