Rare ‘L’ Names for Girls

Screen Shot 2018-03-21 at 3.43.52 PM

Isn’t it interesting that over 1,000 rare ‘L’ names for girls appeared in the 2016 set, while there were only around 430 rare ‘L’ names for boys?  This doesn’t mean the initial isn’t trendy for boys; indeed, Liam is currently the 2nd most popular boys’ name in the U.S.!  It is probably worth noting that the much larger number of feminine ‘L’ names can (among other things) be attributed to manifold variations and relatives of Eleanor, Elizabeth, Laura, Lee, Leilani, Lily, Love, Lucy, and Lynn.  Am I missing any other big ones?
