American Names

Below the Top 1000, Part 42 (Boys)

Today’s selection – boys’ names used only 6 times in 2015!  Since the U.S. data only goes down to names bestowed 5 times, this is the second-to-last post of boys’ names in this series (for 2015, anyway).  Including the girls’ names, there are three more after this one.

One thought on “Below the Top 1000, Part 42 (Boys)

  1. This one is full of heroes and villains! Fawkes, Ramsay, Snowden, Loxley, Legolas, Othello and Yorick to name a few… I like Finbarr from Celtic mythology. I have always liked Einar, surprised it is so uncommon. Great list 🙂
