Last week I talked about names that are also states. Today, I’m listing the girls’ names that were in the top 100 in only one state or Washington, D.C. in 2016! Compare them to the ones in the 2015 list, which had more names because of a difference in formatting (it seems to me that lists for 2015 reflected more ties at the bottom, while the 2016 lists cut off exactly at the 100th name). Anyways, I’ll post the list of boys’ names later this week.
Alaska: Anastasia, Heidi, Laura, River
California: Alina, Angela, Giselle
D.C.: Madeleine, Royal, Catherine, Margot, Logan, Talia, Bridget
Hawaii: Kalea, Anela, Mahina, Malia, Kiana, Leila, Marley, Emi, Skye, Alana, Anuhea, Kaila, Kenzie, Naia, Alexandria, Jordan, Journey, Kailani
Louisiana: Camille, Demi, Lyric
Mississippi: Malaysia, Kayleigh, Makenzie, Jada
Montana: Lexi, Sage
New Hampshire: Delaney, Tessa
New Jersey: Sienna
New Mexico: Lilliana, Aliyah, Aviana, Avianna
North Dakota: Briella
Rhode Island: Gia
South Dakota: Reese, Berkley, Elaina
Vermont: Wren, Ayla, Genevieve, Rowan, Willa, Emelia, Hope
West Virginia: Alivia, Braelynn, Gracelynn, Mckenna, Baylee
Wyoming: Felicity, Emmy, Madilynn, Brinley, Brylee
A few names that reached the top 100 in a state list aren’t even in the top 1000 nationally! In 2016, these were Anela, Anuhea, Berkley, Emi, Kalea, Kaila, Mahina, and Naia; Hawaii claims the vast majority of these rarities.
Do you have any favorites from this list? Let me know!
