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 this one-hit wonder come from?

A silent film called Six Days, which was released in September of 1923.

The main character, Laline Kingston (played by actress Corinne Griffith), was an “American society girl whose scheming and extravagant mother force[d] her into an engagement with Sir Charles Chetwyn, a wealthy Englishman.” While visiting Paris, though, Laline met and fell in love with Dion Leslie, a young sculptor who (of course!) happened to be Chetwyn’s son.

The movie was based on the 1923 novel of the same name by British romance writer Elinor Glyn. The novel was also serialized in at least a few U.S. newspapers in late 1924.
