I must be out of touch because most of these look misspelled to me.

Thank you so much for compiling this!

@mollysilvester I would have expected Biden to rise a bit during the election campaign and then fall again. I’m surprised that, given it showed up at all, didn’t already do it in 2020!

@Harvest-Endellion Don’t worry, most look misspelled to me too :grin: Keep in mind most of these were used exactly five times across the USA. [name_m]Five[/name_m] out of millions. Ozais is not, by any means, a common name.

I wish the US system allowed hyphenated names! very intrigued by the number of -reddy combos. behind the name has it as a Telugu (Eastern Indian) surname meaning ‘headman’ so perhaps it’s an aspirational thing? or a way to acknowledge both parents’ surnames?

That makes me feel better. Augden, indeed!

I love the name Wilden! I’m thinking of it pronounced as “Wil-den” (don’t like it as “Wild-en”). It seems musical and soft. I think it might end up on my list of favourites. :slight_smile:

Lots of cool names here!!

I’m a fan of some of these word names - Time, Keeper, and [name_u]Prayer[/name_u] really stand out to me. [name_m]Silo[/name_m] also stands out to me, but not 100% in a good way :-l The sounds are lovely but I’m not sold on the meaning.

There are some just beautiful-sounding names, too, like [name_m]Endymion[/name_m], [name_u]Oleander[/name_u], and [name_m]Elessar[/name_m].

And then of course there’s Zagreus x-) Everyone loved the game [name_m]Hades[/name_m], I suppose!

Names that stood out to me:

Amillyon
Arsin
Ba
Darlington
[name_m]Howl[/name_m] - people must be into Howl’s Moving [name_m]Castle[/name_m]?
[name_f]Kleo[/name_f]
Kwest
Lobo - this mostly stands out to me because it’s the name of my local soccer league and makes me laugh remembering all of the girls in my grade with shirts that said LOBO
Neegan - odd seeing this on the chart since I thought the Walking Dead had fallen out of the public eye for the most part, unless it’s getting a resurgence in it’s final season

ooh! thank you for compiling this!

my favorites are: alioth, arcturus, cardinal, darlington, endymion, jovie, nirvana, oleander, prayer, regulus, rhema, simonpeter, symphony, viven, and woodensley!

biden is interesting . . .

Haha same

@Wandarine where do you find the names that are out of the top 1000?

You can download all names for all years here. They also have breakdowns by state!

Finally getting around to having a good look at this. Thanks @Wandarine!

Some thoughts as I browse through…

Aathiran - this is nice! ah-theer-an, ay-theer-an? I like both.

Aurum - saying or-um, like ‘oar’ I am quite drawn to this. It sounds quite mystical. It could be PN differently though, e.g. Ow-rum with ow like the sound in how.

Ayker - a different spelling of acre?

Everen - PN’ing it eev-ren is lovely

Ezaias - is this a biblical smoosh? Ezra meets Isias? Forebears lists it as a rare Brazilian last name.

Finlan - well, of course! Popular prefix meets popular suffix, et voilà!

Five - yes, I do like this one!

Gursanjh - a feminine Punjabi name meaning partnership/together with Guru

Jocari & Joham - I collect Jo names so these will be joining.

Keeper - love it!

Luuk - love this spelling.

Masaad - Israeli place name and last name.

Meshulam - sounds beautiful! Spelling variation of Meshullam? Meshullam | The amazing name Meshullam: meaning and etymology The meaning is lovely.

Nosiah - sounds a bit comically negative considering all the familiar names ending with ‘iah’ that we know! Forebears lists it as a rare last name in England.

Oceano - well that’s just very handsome.

Sansar - love it!

Varenya - I thought this might be Slavic but it’s a Sanskrit word meaning most desirable, wished for.
