One-Hit Wonders

Sometimes names just don't catch on. Here are the greatest hits of names that have been used exactly one year, and then disappeared without a trace. Some of them are clearly misspellings (e.g., Mmary is most likely Mary). Some of them may be miscategorizations (e.g., a boy named Addilyn in 2016?). Some of them commemorate famous people of the time (Twiggy, Comaneci). Some may be names that are common in foreign languages, but aren't too common in the USA.

The entire list is here.

The most interesting names are listed below (BOYS greatest hits are on the next page).
