I covered Ebony what seems like ages ago when I first started blogging, but after what Anna said and me struggling to find names from my childhood it seems like a good time to start a new series. And the first name in the series is rather arrogantly my own.
Ebony has charted since the 1960’s when 3 Ebony’s were born and rose up to64 in 2000-2004 (thanks NSW Data) after falling to 140 in 2011 it rose to 97 in Australia and since NSW name explorer which I normally use hasn’t been updated I don’t know how popular it is in NSW. Ebony comes from the english word Ebony and I normally say the meaning is deep dark black wood. One of the main reasons Ebony didn’t catch on in America is the racial overtones and a lot of people see it as a lower class stripper name. In Australia i highly recommend it but spell it properly.
