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.

Mystery baby name: Tramell

So here’s a multi-name mystery from the mid-1960s. Five very similar baby names — Tremell, Tremelle, Tremel, Trumell, and Tramell — all appeared for the first time in the U.S. data in 1966. The name Trammell, which wasn’t new to the data, re-emerged that year as well.

University of Alabama quarterback Pat Trammell would have been a good answer, but he played from 1958 to 1961 (much too early) and he died of cancer in 1968 (two years too late). Plus, none of the Tremell-babies I’ve found so far were born in Alabama.

I am seeing a number of them in Texas, though, which could be meaningful. And the multiple spellings suggest that the source was at least partially audio (e.g., a movie, a television show, a news report).

Do you have theories about what inspired this name-group?
