The name Kashonna appeared for the first time in the U.S. baby name data in 1984:
1985: 8 baby girls named Kashonna
1984: 15 baby girls named Kashonna [debut]
Where did it come from?
A gruesome news story.
In October of 1984, a mentally ill man in Cleveland named Darnell Parker tortured his family over an 18-hour period. He was trying to “[drive] the devil out of their bodies.”
His common-law wife, Linda Davis, managed to escape and notify authorities. When the police arrived, they found one of Linda’s three children was already dead. Another died hours later at the hospital.
According to the initial news reports, the first victim was 2-year-old Kashonna, who had been decapitated. The second was 8-year-old Myril, who’d been “stabbed in the chest and back” and “also suffered burns on his face.” The third child, 4-year-old Natalia, “was in critical condition with multiple stab wounds and burns.”
By the time of Parker’s indictment a week later, doctors had figured out that the first victim was actually Natalia, not Kashonna, and reporters had figured out that Darnell Parker’s last name was actually Donnell, and that Myril’s first name was actually Myrio.
Though Kashonna survived for several more weeks, she ended up passing away later the same month. (Incidentally, her name is spelled Kashona on the children’s shared gravestone.)
Mark Calcavecchia, who won the British open last month, withdrew from the PGA Championship, which starts Thursday in suburban Chicago, because his wife gave birth to their first child — a seven-pound, six-ounce daughter named Britney Jo.
[To clarify: The baby, born two weeks after the British Open, was named Britney to commemorate the victory.]
From a 2013 article about names in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
“The Name Game” was a hit for Shirley Ellis in 1965. You know the song: “Shirley-Shirley-bo-burly, banana-fana-fo-furly, fee-fie-foe-murly … Shirley!” She bragged that “there isn’t any name that you can’t rhyme.” While entertaining soldiers in Vietnam, however, she discovered she couldn’t rhyme “Rich” or “Chuck.”
[The other names featured in the original version of the novelty song were Lincoln, Arnold, Tony, Billy, Marsha, and Nick.]
Vogue editor Anna Wintour (in the February 2011 issue) writing about Tucson-born model Arizona Muse:
When I look at Arizona, I see shadows of Linda Evangelista and Natalia Vodianova, but most of all I see her, a gorgeous, smart, grown-up. And how could anyone resist someone with that name?

The country of Poland is located in Central Europe and shares a border with seven other countries (including Russia, Germany, and Slovakia).
Last year, Poland welcomed approximately 305,000 babies — 290,000 of which were born to Polish parents and 15,000 of which were born to non-Polish parents (many of them Ukrainian refugees).
What were the most popular names among all these babies? Zofia and Antoni.
Here are Poland’s top 50 girl names and top 50+ boy names of 2022:
Zofia, 5,714 baby girls
Iga, 2,847 – a diminutive of either Jadwiga or Ignacja
Antoni, 6,670 baby boys
Cezary, 892 (tie)
Tadeusz, 892 (tie)
Ksawery, 849 – a form of Xavier
Kazimierz, 674 (tie)
Kuba, 674 (tie)
(Because L‘s with a stroke don’t render properly on my site, you’ll have to imagine they exist in several of the above: the girl name Lucja and the boy names Mikolaj, Stanislaw, Michal, Milosz, and Pawel.)
Poland’s data goes all the way down to names with just two instances of usage, so here’s a sampling of the rare baby names at the opposite end of the spectrum:
