American baby names

Updated: April 9th, 2024

Due to the cultural diversity in America, Americans have a great variation in baby names and naming traditions. In America, names are used to express the personality, the cultural identity, creativity, and the values. As there are very few laws governing given names in America, hence they have freedom to choose a wide variety of names and naming trends.

Traditionally, American baby names were based on the court rulings which is rooted in the Due Process Clause of the fourteenth Amendment and the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment with few restrictions. The naming laws in America vary from state to state. For example, in California there is a ban on diacritical marks, such as in José which is a common Spanish name. They can use only 26 alphabetical characters of the English language. In some other states like Alaska, North Carolina, and Hawaii, accents and some non-English letters are allowed in birth certificates and other documents. While in many US states, personal names with only two symbols that are hyphens and apostrophe are officially allowed.
