Some of us teach and know little girls with that name. Popular. Also Yareli is frequently used.

I have a hard time believing some of these are the MOST popular in that letter. How is Harper more common than Hailey or Hannah? Kaylee is more popular than Kate, Brooklyn more than Brianna, it's really surprising.

I wonder if all the alternate spellings that burned out teen moms give their kids count toward the usual spelling. Like The People's Popular Front of Judea, this could cause splitting in the ranks.

I can see naming her Brooklyn if you're the only one doing it. Wanna be unique, I get it. But everyone else is doing it too! That's the crowd mentality for you.

Just had twin nieces born named Brooklyn and Gracelyn. Using place names for people isn't unusual. I remember past eras of Dakota, Sierra, Cheyenne, Cody, Dallas, Denver, and Paris. I might have to draw the line at some, however. I can't imagine a child named Reykjavik or Honolulu but it wouldn't surprise me to see those on the list, too.

Better than Delilah, IMO. At least Brooklyn can be shortened to Brook(e), which is a fairly common name. But Delilah? Of all the Biblical names to pick from?

"Yaretzi" ??? That is actually in the top100? Originality and all that is all nice, but how original is it when you get to the top100, then it's just plain weird. Also didn't get half the clues.. Merchant? Wilde? - that's Oscar, isn't it? Bazaar?
+1
level 83
May 12, 2016
I did the same thing with Oscar, but interestingly, for both Merchant and Bazaar the names came to mind immediately, but I had to think about them for a few seconds before I realized why they matched. I mean really, what does Natalie have to do with selling things...

It's a Mexican name, which doesn't make it "weird". Also, this is the top 1000, not top 100. Though you do find other, more cross-cultural Hispanic names like Angel, Jose, Santiago, and Eliana in the top 100.

"Weird" is anything unusual. And what's unusual depends on your own experience. Hence to be Yaretzi is rather weird. Thanks for the explanation though, to know it's Mexican explains it. Rather than those Unique names that people come up with to be "unique". See under U. That's rather ironic really.

I had a lovely student a few years ago named Kennedy and since then I've always liked the name for a girl. Perhaps people make names beautiful or obnoxious by their own personalities. Yaretzi is really pretty too, and not unusual among Hispanic students, although I've seen Yareli more often.

I can think of two Kennedys: 1) The mononymous Kennedy was an MTV VJ in the 90s for the outstanding and now-defunct "Alternative Nation" hour of – gasp! – actual videos. Now she's a Republican talking head that sometimes pops up on Fox News. She's definitely a social liberal: pro same-sex marriage, etc., but after Kurt Loder turned her on to Ayn Rand, she's now some sort of Objectivistesque libertarian or something. She was always pretty weird. 2) Willow's cradle-robbed girlfriend in Buffy the Vampire Slayer was named Kennedy.

Ximena is a popular name. It was the 126th most popular name from 2014-2018. During that period, there were 12,714 baby girls in the United States who were given the name Ximena. Keep in mind that the size of the Hispanic community in the U.S. is quite large.
