Which boy names increased in usage the most from 2021 to 2022?
Here’s a table of the fastest-rising boy names of 2022. On the left are the top 25 increases in terms of absolute change (numbers of babies). On the right are the top 25 increases in terms of relative change (percentages of babies).
Walker, Theodore, and several others were also among the fastest-rising names (absolute change) in 2021.
A couple of possible explanations for the relative rises…
Maykel Osorbo is a rapper/activist from Cuba who was jailed in mid-2022.
Dutton is a surname from the TV series Yellowstone. (And Cayce is similar to Kayce, a forename from Yellowstone.)
If you can explain any of the other rises, please leave a comment!
Below are hundreds of baby names with a numerological value of 9.
What do I mean by that?
Well, in numerology, you substitute each letter in a word with that letter’s ordinal value in the alphabet. (The letter B has a value of 2, for instance, because it’s the second letter.) Then you add those ordinal values together to come up with a total. Lastly, you add the digits of that total together to obtain a numerological value.
Here’s an example: The letters in the name Jake have the values 10, 1, 11, and 5. Added together, these values equal 27. And the digits of 27 added together equal 9.
All of the “9” names below are sub-categorized by totals — just in case any of those larger numbers are significant to anyone. Within each group you’ll find some of the most popular “9” names per gender (according to the most recent set of U.S. baby name rankings).

Looking for a set of baby names with something in common? If so, here are some 5-letter anagram names for you to check out!
Anagrams are words that contain the same set of letters, but not in the same sequence. For instance, the words “alter,” “alert,” and “later” are all anagrams of one another.
Anagram names can be a neat option for siblings — particularly multiples (like twins and triplets). They’re also a clever way to connect a baby name to the name of an older relative (e.g., grandpa Klaus, grandson Lukas).
Below are hundreds of five-letter names (collected from the SSA’s huge database of U.S. baby names) that happen to be anagrams of other names.
Please note that I did include names in the gray area between one syllable and two syllables. The deciding factor on these particular names will be your own interpretation/accent, so be sure to test the names out loud before making any final decisions. (“Hayle,” for instance — would you say it like Hale, or like Hailey? Or “Rise” — is it rize, or ree-sah?)
