Top Debuts: 1901-1904

Hey guys! Happy Wednesday! We are half way through the week and the weekend will be in 2 days. So the post I have for you is another one in the Top Debuts series. I have the years 1901-1904. There are only 4 years this time because the 4th year has a TON on names. So let’s get started.

1901
Venita- This was the top debut for girls in 1901 and was given to 11 babies. Venita means home people in Latin. It was given to no babies this year.
Eino- This was the top debut for boys in 1901 and was given to 9 babies. Eino means point of a sword in German and was given to no babies this year.

1902
Mercie- This was the top debut for girls in 1902. It was given to 10 babies. Mercie means compassion, forbearance in English and was given to 8 babies this year.
Clarnce- This was the top debut for boys in 1902 and was given to 9 babies. I couldn’t find the meaning of Clarnce but it may be a different spelling of Clarence, which means one who lives near the River Clare in Latin. It was given to no babies this year.

1903
Estela- This was the top debut for girls in 1903 and was given to 11 babies. Estela means star in Latin. This year it was given to 86 babies.

  • Lenon means dear one in Irish and was given to no babies this year.
  • Porfirio means purple in Italian and was given to 16 babies this year.

1904
Magdaline- This was the top debut for girls in 1904 and was given to 9 babies. Magdaline means woman of Magdala in Hebrew. This year it was given to 5 babies.
Adrain, Arbie, Betty, Desmond, Domenic, Duard, Raul and Severo- These were the top debuts for boys in 1904. They were each given to 8 babies.
  • Adrain means from Hadria in Latin and was given to 24 babies this year.
  • Arbie means crossbow in French and was given to no babies this year.

  • Duard means wealthy guardian in English and was given to no babies this year.
  • Raul means wolf counsel in Spanish and was ranked at #359 this year.

So that is my list. I hope you guys are enjoying this series and I will hopefully get back to the “Rare” names series this weekend. As of right now I am ahead of my posting days so I am still posting everyday but once I get behind I will make up a schedule and hopefully follow it. I am trying to stay ahead but I don’t know how long that will happen because of school. That is really all and I will take to you tomorrow. Bye for now :).

  1. Wow, some great names from the turn of the century!

    Venita, Estela and Magdaline all sound beautiful, and hello, who knew Lenon's variant Lennon would end up being so big?

    1. I love Magadline and Venita.

      I know right! It is so cool to see how these names were so rare back than but are really popular now.
