2016 Comeback Kids

I thought long and hard about what posts I wanted to put up about the changes in popularity and such for the 2016 SSA list. I decided I wanted to focus on the comeback kids because I don't see them floating around a lot. Every year when the new SSA name list comes out I like to take a look and see what names have made their way back onto the list. These are names that were in the top 1000 any year before but were not in the top 1000 in 2015. That means that they can be of the charts for one year or 10 years.

All of the names are ordered from least amount of time spent off the SSA top 1000 list to most about of time spent off the SSA top 1000 list. You will find that the names who spent only a year off the list first.

Some interesting things about the lists above include The boys name Creed. It has not been in the top 1000 since 1910! Can you believe its been 106 years the name ranked?! And the best part is it has only ranked in those 2 years. Now I am wondering what could have made the name rank in both these years and so far apart.

Creed isn't the only name to rank in just two separate years. Names on the above list that fit into that category include Koda, Brayson, Anniston, and Alianna.

I noticed what seems to be a little trend going on at the bottom of the SSA chart. Vintage girl names are popping up after years of being off the list. Names like Emmie, Belle Vada, and Mavis all haven't ranked since the 1930s and 1940s.
