Where did it come from?

The Bachelor runner-up Krisily Kennedy.

Krisily (pronounced KRIS-ih-lee) was a contestant on the show’s seventh season, which aired during the spring of 2005 and featured bachelor Charlie O’Connell, younger brother of actor Jerry O’Connell.

During the show’s 3-hour finale — the first in which a bachelor made his final decision on live TV — Charlie chose the other remaining contestant, Sarah Brice, over Krisily.

Krisily (who was Miss Rhode Island USA in 2003, incidentally) went on to participate in the first season of Bachelor Pad in 2010.

P.S. One of Charlie’s twin nieces was named after him. (The other twin was named after Dolly Parton.)

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.
