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.

What turned Millennium into a baby name in 1999?

The new year is a few days away! Going from 2010 to 2011 will be cool, though probably not as cool as it was going from 1999 to 2000 (Y2K!) or from 2000 to 2001 (the official start of the new millennium).

Speaking of the millennium, did you know that dozens of baby girls were given the names Millennium and Millennia (and variants) about a decade ago? The names started popping up in the mid-90s and were gone by the early 2000s.

(Millenium and Millinia were one-hit wonders.)

So why did Millenia and Millennia appear early? A pair of products: a car and a fragrance. The Mazda Millenia was a sedan launched (in North America) around 1995, and Millennia was a perfume launched by Avon in 1996.
