Rare ‘J’ Names for Girls

Screen Shot 2018-02-23 at 11.25.35 AM

The last few letters I’ve written rare-name posts about have been relatively unusual initials for baby names; F, G, H, and I all had few enough names that the girls’ and boys’ names could be combined into a single post for each letter.  J, on the other hand, needs separate posts.  It’s still nowhere near as common as A, but with that said…over 2,600 J names appeared in the SSA’s 2016 data-set!

*2016 was the first time that Jenny hasn’t been in the top 1000.  The number of perennially popular baby names dwindles every year…
