American Names

Below the Top 1000, Part 24 (Boys)

Hi everyone, happy Halloween!  11 AM and struggling not to doze off, even with espresso.  Stayed up late last night to watch Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)…I have to say, it’s like watching Scooby Doo in black and white!  There was a lot of running from Dracula, mostly within an eerie castle upon the sea.

Anyway, it’s been a week since my last “below the top 1000” post!  This selection includes names given to 20, 21, or 22 boys in the U.S. in 2015.  If you’re tuning in for the first time, welcome!  I write these posts weekly; next week will include girls’ names in the same range.  The data comes from the Social Security Administration, which publishes America’s most popular baby names every year, plus rare names down to 5 uses.

  • 22: Adonijah, Avenir, Bao, Carmen, Chukwuemeka, Edmundo, Erasmo, Franklyn, Gehrig, Gustav, Han, Ioannis, Jezreel, Juandiego, Kadarius, Kashtyn, Koi, Krithik, Marino, Maxximus, Nero, Quintus, Rune, Rupert, Trinidad, Vir, Walton, Wellington, Wrigley, Yeshaya, Zalman
  • 21: Argenis, Aristotle, Artemio, Ashraf, Brave, Celso, Cheskel, Copper, Creedence, Crixus, Delbert, Dillinger, Garland, Haakon, Heinrich, Jaaziel, Jeanpierre, Legion, Menashe, Noach, Pharoah, Philippe, Poseidon, Prentice, Prosper, Quill, Reno, Stavros, Strider, Taft, Tyberius, Wilhelm, Winslow
  • 20: Abdimalik, Abenezer, Aceson, Alarik, Auguste, Dacari, Enrico, Ericson, Falcon, Ferdinand, Feynman, Giles, Hamish, Hart, Helios, Jeanluc, Justis, Kanoa, Kona, Kosta, Lord, Misha, Naman, Nashton, Norris, Oluwadarasimi, Rohaan, Rumi, Thelonious, Tilden, Xadrian, Zadkiel, Zeeshan

What do you think of these names?  Let me know in the comments!  Have a safe and fun holiday. 🙂
