Do you have a great aunt named Stella? Odds are good that you don’t know any ladies your own age named Stella. In fact, during most of the 90’s this moniker was virtually unused. It was, however, a fairly common name for women born in the early part of the twentieth century. Its vintage charm may be what’s helping this name make a comeback. The fact that it sounds so similar to another popular but worn out name – Ella – may also be helping. Stella barely inched its way back into the Social Security Administration’s top 1000 most popular names in 1998 but has steadily moved forward on the list since then. In the last ten years it has jumped from the 656th spot all the way up to the 85th position on the SSA’s list of most popular names in 2010.
