2020 Newbies

I love more unique names so taking a look at the bottom of the top 1000 chart is always my favorite thing to do. If you caught my blog post from earlier than you may be aware of what I do every year when the new list comes out. If not I'll explain it. Every year I take a look at all the names that are new to the top 1000 and spilt them up into 2 sublist: newbies and comeback kids. Earlier today I featured the comeback kids and now I have the newbies. What is  newbies name? It is a name that has never been on the top 1000 list before. Some of the names you may already be familiar with but I'm sure most of these names are all new to you. 

*Below I have the name with the ranking for the year 2020 and the number of spots it jumped in parentheses*

2020 Comeback Kids

One of my favorite things to do when the new top names list comes out is look at names that are new to the list. Personally I split the list into two sublist: newbies and comeback kids. Newbie names are names that have never ranked in the top 1000. Comeback kids are names that have been off the top 1000 list for one or more years. Most of the names on the latter list are off 1-2 years but every so often you get a name that has not been ranked since the 1930s. When I come across those gems I always let out a little squeal of excitement. I am a huge advocate for using these vintage gem. 

I would like to just say a small disclaimer. If you are looking at this list and disappointed to see a name because you would like it to stay unpopular, don't worry. The chance of that name becoming uber popular in the next 10 years are slim. Some of these names will fall off the charts again next year. Others may only jump a handful of spots before falling off the list yet again. 

Since I know this list can be confusing I want to just breakdown how the data is presented. You will see the name below and the number next to the name is the current ranking for 2020 (the most recent years worth of data). Below the name is the last year it was ranked and next to the year is the spot it last ranked at.

I always like to point out some interesting facts after everyone has taken a look at the list of names. But before I go into the interesting facts I just want to say I am so happy with the comeback boy names. A lot of the names on this list as well as the newbie list at names I have been hoping would jump into the top 1000 for a few years now. Now for some facts!

  • Denise and Denisse are both comeback kids. One name 2 spellings. I don't think I've ever seen that happen before! 
  • The boy name with the longest time off the top 1000: Jones with 89 years!
  • The girl name with he longest time off the top 1000: Violette with 93 years! 
  • Last year the longest a name was off the list for was 65 years!
