Did you know South Carolina was one of the original thirteen colonies? South Carolina is home to lots of delightful names. Parents in South Carolina, also, like original names for their kids. You’ll see Heyward and Furman on lists of boy names and Eartha and Pearline on lists of girl names.
Each year, the Social Security Administration publishes the totals for the first names from all Social Security card applications for births that occurred in the US since 1880. The publication is the most complete record of first name usage in the United States. Because Social Security can take quite a while to compile data on the most popular baby names for each year, Names.Org used data on the actual births in recent years to predict the most popular baby names for 2022. Their formula looks at the five most recent years’ worth of data from the Social Security Administration to detect any trends. With their results, these are the predicted most popular baby names for 2022.
We are taking the list and going from the bottom to the top of the baby names for South Carolina. In 2022, these are the top boy and girl names listed below.
