Which boy names emerged in the U.S. baby name data in 2021 for the first time ever?
Exactly 500 boy names debuted in the data last year, and the most impressive debut was made by
Azaire. Here are the other top debuts:
Azaire, 25 baby boys Gediz, 21 Jeyvier, 15 Damiri, 14 Ripton, 14 Zakius, 13 Kampbell, 12 Biden, 11 Khaizer, 11 Nuta, 11 Shrithik, 11
The name Biden was no doubt inspired by Joe Biden, who was elected president in late 2020.
Some more debuts:
10 baby boys Amaias, Azekial, Howl, Maclen, Oceano, Oleander 9 baby boys Aathiran, Atlus, Avyaanreddy, Cymere, Dhamir, Eleo, Ice, Kapree, Kenshi, Kyza, Riftyn, Three, Yankiel 8 baby boys Aadrik, Ador, Amirii, Anansi, Aurum, Ayaat, Bucklee, Emerett, Gervonta, Henlee, Hiyaan, Hyndrix, Inzo, Jerzi, Jetzyn, Jhayco, Karlisle, Kyngdom, Ledgend, Maaran, Ovi, Ovin, Rhiatt, Rodas, Sicarii, Svar, Wilden, Yahnis, Yasuke, Yzael, Zeldris
Finally, here’s a sampling of the rest of the debuts:
7 baby boys: Arcturus, Arminius, Brixson, Darlington, Finnin, Habibullah, Jahvani, Kovie, Lobo, Mellow, Neptune, Osaro, Riften, Ropyr, Teghbir, Zagreus 6 baby boys: Anwyll, Cardinal, Debonair, Evansh, Five, Gilber, Huxtin, Jovial, Kalki, Khrome, Koufax, Lightning, Lugh, Minhaj, Niqo, Pure, Rhema, Rizvan, Saturn, Torbjorn, Varenya, Whiskey, Ymir, Zeelan 5 baby boys: Amnon, Benelli, Caique, Costner, Dhev, Endymion, Grit, Haaland, Henzo, Hotchner, Iyah, Jheico, Kazarion, Keeper, Laiku, Maestro, Nyne, Ohtli, Preacher, Quban, Regulus, Sango, Sansar, Science, Tancredi, Wickham, Woodensley, Yester, Yoshiyahu
Zagreus is the main character of the recently released video game
Haaland goes hand-in-hand with the
fast-rising boy name Erling, as they both refer to Norwegian soccer player Erling Haaland (which alex has already noted — thank you!).
I think it’s particularly interesting that several number-names — Three (9), Five (6), and Nyne (5) — popped up last year. I have no idea why, though.
If you can explain any of the above debuts, please leave a comment!

Please note that I did include names in the gray area between one syllable and two syllables. The deciding factor on these particular names will be your own interpretation/accent, so be sure to test the names out loud before making any final decisions. (“Hayle,” for instance — would you say it like
Hale, or like Hailey? Or “Rise” — is it , or rize ?) ree-sah
Many of these names also happen to be unisex, so they appear on the
One-Syllable Boy Names list as well.
