New Study Warns, Girls Named Heather Are Going Extinct

By Anna Quintana

It's a national tragedy. According to a data analysis by Quartz, the once popular name Heather is going extinct. 

The name, which peaked in 1975, is now listed at 1,129th on the list of trending baby names. 

Apparently, at its most popular, there were more than 24,000 girls named Heather — falling behind only Jennifer and Amy. In 2017, that number had dropped to just 219.
