Hattie has a good chance of being one of the next wave of vintage grandma nicknames, supplanting Annie and Jenny, and joining the spunkier Mamie and Mitzi, especially since it was chosen by Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott for their third child. This celebrity choice, in addition to it's appearance in television show Parenthood (spelled Haddie), has made this name one of the fastest-rising on the 2013 list -- it jumped 138 spots between 2012 and 2013.

Hattie was popular at the end of the nineteenth century, in the Top 50 from 1880 to 1900, along with other similar nickname names like Lottie and Letty. It fell off the list in 1969, to return in 2011, the year of Hattie McDermott's birth.
