Whats is in a Name

The most popular name given to babies in 2017 is Enzokuhle. The name, which shares the top spot for both males and females, loosely translates to, “to do good”.

According to the Recorded Live Births, 2017 report released by Statistics South Africa (Stats SA), a person’s forename and surname are fundamental human rights enshrined in the Births and Deaths Registration Act (Act No. 51 of 1992). It is one of the most distinctive markers of individuality and is a prerequisite for the issuing of a birth certificate.”

Stats from The U.S.

  • In the U.S., more people are born on October 5 than any other day.
  • In the U.S., the least common birth date is May 22nd (excluding leap years.)
