The Popularity of Palindromic Baby Names

When you think of palindromic names (those that are spelled the same backward and forward), Anna, Bob, and Eve come to mind. But Bob is usually a diminutive of Robert, and it's not all that popular in the 21st century. In fact, there were no babies born in the US in 2021 who were named Bob on their birth certificates. Anna and Eve are still popular for girls, but more than 12,700 girls were named Ava in 2021. Overall, the number of different palindromic names has exploded, as you can see from the chart above. Namerology has compiled a Complete Master List of Palindrome Baby Names (using United States statistics) showing their all-time popularity and their popularity in 2021. There are quite a few 6-letter names, but the only 7-letter names are Habibah and Reinier. Check them out; you might find one you like. However, if you were to give one of these names to your child, you'll have to explain it later, and "because it's a palindrome" may not be a good enough reason for them. (via Metafilter)
