Top girl-name debuts of 2015

The music-inspired name Kehlani was the top debut name for baby girls in 2015.

In order for a rare baby name to debut on the Social Security Administration’s annual baby name list, it has to be given to at least 5 U.S. babies of either one gender or the other within a given year.

Of all the girl names that debuted in 2015, the following were the most popular:

1. Kehlani, 48 baby girls
2. Dayelin, 34
3. Abrish, 29
4. Alahia, 22
5. Hazelgrace, 22
6. Brave, 17
7. Nadyalee, 17
8. Hoorain, 15
9. Aitanna, 14
10. Aithana, 14
11. Aytana, 14
12. Brexley, 14
13. Jeshia, 14
14. Averyrose, 13
15. Absalat, 12
16. Kassiani, 12
17. Ovi, 12
18. Viyona, 12
19. Charlestyn, 11
20. Ditya, 11
21. Kylierae, 11
22. Mansirat, 11

And a handful from the 10-and-under group: Tanvika, Espn (it arrives for girls, finally!), Heavenlyjoy, Wylder, Yemariam, Carver, Edelweiss, Gloricely, Darasimi, Elshaddai, Ezoza, Maggiemae, Zeppelyn, Amitis, Anthem, Moxley, Wellesley, Witten, Gatsby, Skyland, Adorable, Brizleth, Lameese, Ludovica, Maleficent (Maleficent!), Maori, Stellaluna, Vaiga, Vydia.

Where do the names above come from? Here are a few explanations:

  • Kehlani – from Kehlani Parrish (stage name Kehlani), American R&B singer.
  • Hazelgrace – from Hazel Grace Lancaster, a character from The Fault in Our Stars (2014).
  • Nadyalee – from Nadyalee Torres, Puerto Rican model, finalist on Nuestra Belleza Latina 2015.
  • Hoorain – from celebrity baby Hoorain, born in July of 2015 to Pakistani actors Ayeza Khan and Danish Taimoor.
  • Aitanna, Aithana, and Aytana – from celebrity baby Aitana, born in August of 2014 to Mexican actors Alessandra Rosaldo and Eugenio Derbez.

Can you come up with explanations for any of the others?

Top one-hit wonder names in the U.S. baby name data, 1880 to today

tulips

The Social Security Administration’s annual baby name list only includes names given to 5 or more U.S. babies, of either one gender or the other, per year.

Most rare names never make the list, but a select group have appeared a single time. I like to call these the one-hit wonder baby names.

One-hit wonders tend to pop up with a relatively low number of babies — 5 or 6 — but a handful are given to dozens of babies…only to disappear again the next year! Pretty intriguing, right?

Below are the highest-charting, gender-specific, one-hit wonder names since 1880. The format is: “Girl name(s), number of baby girls; Boy name(s), number of baby boys.”

P.S. I’ll come back every few years and update this list with the most recent pairs of names. In the meanwhile, for more one-hit wonder content, check out this list of interesting one-hit wonder baby names

Babies named for beauty queens

I don’t know much about Nuestra Belleza Mexico, but I can tell you that the Mexican beauty pageant/TV show has had a small effect on the U.S. baby names.

Name debuts that can be attributed to Nuestra Belleza Mexico include…

  • Blancaestela, which debuted in 1994 with 5 baby girls. Inspired by 1994 contestant Blanca Estela Padilla Lopez. (So far, it’s a one-hit wonder.)
  • Banelly, which debuted in 1996 with 6 baby girls. Inspired by 1996 contestant Banelly Carrasco Loya.
  • Itzanami, which debuted in 1999 with 5 baby girls. Inspired by 1999 contestant Itzanami Bermudez Sanchez.

  • Zuszeth, which debuted in 2003 with 5 baby girls. Inspired by 2003 contestant Zuszeth Luna González.

A few of the interesting Nuestra Belleza Mexico names that did not pop up on the U.S. charts are Borinquen, Irantzu and Suslim.

It doesn’t end there, though!

The Mexican show inspired a U.S. version, Nuestra Belleza Latina. It’s much newer — season 6 just ended — but so far it’s had a much bigger impact on U.S. baby names.

Name debuts that can be attributed to Nuestra Belleza Latina include…

  • Madelis, which debuted in 2007 with 30 baby girls. Inspired by 2007 contestant Madelis Soto.
  • Raengel, which debuted in 2007 with 22 baby girls. Inspired by 2007 contestant Raengel Solis.
  • Aideliz, which debuted in 2008 with 91 baby girls. Inspired by 2008 contestant Aideliz Hidalgo. It was the top debut name of 2008. The names Aidelis, Aydeliz and Aydelis also debuted in 2008.
  • Emeraude, which debuted in 2008 with 34 baby girls. Inspired by 2008 contestant Emeraude Toubia.
  • (Dayami didn’t debut, but usage increased significantly in 2008 due to contestant Dayami Padron. The name Dayamy did debut, though.)
  • Greidys, which debuted in 2009 with 186 baby girls. Inspired by 2009 contestant Greidys Gil. It was the top debut name of 2009. The names Greydis, Greidy, Greidis, Greydi, Greydys, Graidys, Greydy and Gradys also debuted in 2009.
  • Chastelyn, which debuted in 2009 with 150 baby girls. Inspired by 2009 contestant Chastelyn Rodriguez. It was the 2nd-highest debut of 2009. The names Chastelin, Shastelyn, Chasteline, Chastelyne and Shastelin also debuted in 2009.
  • Rossibell, which debuted in 2010 with 17 baby girls. Inspired by 2010 contestant Rossibell Mateo.
  • Gredmarie, which debuted in 2011 with 47 baby girls. Inspired by 2011 contestant Gredmarie Colon.
  • Jocell, which debuted in 2011 with 31 baby girls. Inspired by 2011 contestant Jocell Villa.
  • Adrialys, which debuted in 2011 with 16 baby girls. Inspired by 2011 contestant Adrialys Gutierrez.

Finally, here are two unique names from the 2012 season we might see on the SSA’s 2012 list: Lidislay and Essined.

Update, 1/2021: Setareh got a boost in 2012 thanks to contestant Setareh Khatibi; Essined debuted in 2013 because of contestant Essined Aponte; Aleyda got a boost in 2014 from contestant Aleyda Ortiz; Gloricely debuted in 2015 because of contestant Gloricely Loug; Nadyalee debuted in 2015 from contestant Nadyalee Torres.
