Below the Top 1000, Part 3 (Girls)

Each week I have been posting about some of the names below the top 1000; that is, rare names given to actual babies in the U.S. in 2015.  Just because they’re rare doesn’t mean they aren’t trendy; many of these names are rising in usage and some may enter (or reenter) the top 1000 within a few years.  Others have become outdated and suffer a long decline.

This week’s post regards the girls’ names in the range of 150-199 uses.  Not all names from that range are included here; this is simply a selection.

One thought on “Below the Top 1000, Part 3 (Girls)

  1. Love a lot of the names on this list! I’ve never heard Essence used as a name before; I like it. And Tesla! Just yesterday I was thinking what a great name that would be. Cool and different, plus Nikola Tesla makes a worthy namesake.
