WHAT’S IN A NAME?

Posted

Vanellope, Rydder, Jceion and Burklee head the new annual list of most common baby names on the Social Security Administration register of first-time-appearing names. There were 63 Vanellopes (girls), but only 10 each for Rydder and Jceion, the most popular debut names for boys. Other notables were Hatch (eight times) and Psalms (seven). And among finalists in April’s “Name of the Year” contest sponsored by Deadspin.com were the actual monikers Curvaceous Bass, (Dr.) Eve Gruntfest and Chillie Poon … and the winner: Shamus Beaglehole.
