|Kehlani (born Kehlani Ashley Parrish)|
Kehlani, presumably inspired by the R&B/Soul singer, is the biggest moving name of 2017! The name debuted in 2015 with 48 girls being named Kehlani. This is pretty impressive in itself, as usually when a name shows up for the first time in the Top 7000, it only has a count of 5-20. Kehlani increased over 600% in 2016, and then in 2017 nearly doubled again in 2017, making it the most popular spelling of the name that up until this point, was Kailani. But, what makes this name more remarkable is that the other spellings Kehlanii, Kehlany, and Kehlanie were also added to the name pool this year, as well as the similar names/spellings Jehlani, Lehlani, Mehlani, Tehlani and Ehlani.
