Category: popularity of Henry
Why does Henry consistently rank as one of the top two Nameberry favorite boysâ€™ names? (Finn is the other one.)
Henry has a lot going for it.Â Let us count the ways:
HENRY IS POPULAR, WELL-LIKED, BUT NOT EPIDEMICALLY TRENDY.
At #67 on the Social Security list last year,Â Henry was given to a little over 6,000 boys across the countryâ€”as compared to almost 22,000 Jacobs.Â Â Henry was much more commonly heard in the past,Â having beenÂ #10 in 1900, 12 in the 1910s, 18 in the twenties, 25 in the thirties, then dipping to a low of 146 in 1994, after which it started itsÂ edge back up.
