Is This the Ultimate Century Name?

In the wake of the Social Security Adminstration releasing its annual list of baby names, many people are concerned about giving their child an overly popular name.

Well, rejoice, would-be parents: I've found the ultimate "century name" (a moniker that hasn't been popular for 100 years).

For your consideration, Woodrow.


It spiked in the 1910s and then almost immediatly fell out of favor. Currently, it's not even listed among the top 1,000 names. (No danger of saddling your kid with the next "Jayden.")

It's the perfect pattern.
