Nameberry.com has crunched data from the US Social Security office, revealing the names that were given to only five babies in the country in 2013.
Some of the girl’s names wouldn’t be considered too unusual by most modern parents, including Briony, Eugenie and Letitia. But those babies may sit alongside girls named Shaun, Gazelle and Jericho, which also appear on the bottom of the list.
Parents of boys continued giving surnames as first names, with Chaplin, Mclean and Robertson making an appearance.
Other names, such as Rudolf and Kristof, are a nod to less popular names in other cultures.
For privacy, the Social Security office only releases names that have been given to five or more babies in a particular year – there would be countless more unique and unusual names that have been given to less than five children.
The bottom of the list: girls
