The just-released Social Security list includes over 1400 brand-new names, given for the very first time to five or more babies in the US.

As you might imagine, most of these names are pretty far out on the ledge.  There are lots of kree8tiv spellings of more conventional names: Finlea and Massyn, Londonn and Karsan.  There are names from around the world freshly introduced to America: Junhao and Mokshith and Motoki.  There are original combo names — Charlotterose and Marcusjames — and there are new word names and place-names and surname-names — Revelation and Tokyo and Thoreau — and there are even a couple of wonderful old names revived for the modern world: Hypatia and Thisbe, Romilly and Calisto.

But all these newborn names look downright sedate compared to a handful of choices it’s hard to believe were given to even one baby, much less five….or ten….or 63.

They’re the Most Outrageous New Baby Names of 2013.  Here are our picks for the wackiest of the newest, along with the number of babies who received each in the US last year:

Here it is, our report on the babyberries reported in the forums in the month of January and, as we’ve come to expect, there is the usual impressive array of classic and creative individual names, great first and middle combos, and cool sibsets.

Arlo Sebastian & Ezra Valentine and

Arthur Florian Edward & Frederick Robin Jude

And speaking of Arthur, that was the only name used more than once, signaling the strong return of this once gallant Camelot name. ‘A’ was also the most popular first initial for boys, while for girls, M-beginnings took the lead.

I was interested to see one of the male virtue names, Loyal, used by a Berry as a middle, the imaginative Maple as a nickname for Marguerite, a big brother named Escher, and two separate paths to the nickname Cal. And of course, in the always intriguing comments made by these new parents.

Here they are:

We’re always adding new names to Nameberry, and the ten newest on the site all just happen to be for girls.

Half of these names existed on Nameberry before as variations of other names, but without commentary of their own, and the other half are new entries.  All have ancient roots though are unusual — yet usable — in modern times.

Our newest girls’ names for 2013:

Adelina

Adelina is back in the Top 1000 after an absence of nearly a century, thanks to the meteoric rise of her sister name Adeline — along with Adelaide, Adele, and Ada.  Some parents choose Adelina because they want to get to cute vintage nickname Addie, but others favor it as a slightly more unusual form of this sweet vintage girls’ name.
