What Is the Trendiest Baby Name in American History?

What Is the Trendiest Baby Name in American History?  

Hint: There's a Beatles connection (but maybe not the one you're thinking).

Deneen? Seriously? I was around in the 1960s and do not ever remember a single person named Deneen. I don't ever remember seeing or hearing of anyone named Deneen.

As for the Linda thing, I guess I'll have to take his word for it.

I'd like to understand the meteoric rise in popularity of the girl's name Ava. Until about a decade ago, the only Ava I'd ever heard of was Ava Gardner. What suddenly caused that name to move into the top ten?

Rick Robinson said...

Ava was popular? Really? And I agree with Jeff on Deneen, I've never heard of anyone named that, and I'm not even sure how it should be pronounced.

Rick--I don't know if you have grandkids, but do a quick poll of your friends who do and I guarantee you'll find at least one with a granddaughter (less than ten years old) named Ava. I think it's a pretty name; I'm just curious as to how it suddenly became so popular.
