Boy Names of Death theme

The belief of a supernatural power governing death is deep-seated in the worldview of many cultures, which explains why the majority of ‘death’ names originate from characters in the spirit realm. Anubis, Thanatos and Yaman, are all names of gods of death in Egyptian, Greek and Hindu mythology respectively. Death names are very popular baby names for boys. At the height of their usage in 1951, 6.559% of baby boys were given Death names. There were 29 Death names ranked within the top 1000 baby names then. Death names have since experienced a decline in frequency, but are nonetheless used on a very heavy scale now. In 2018, 33 Death names listed among the top 1000, with a combined usage of 3.628%. Within all Death names, the English, French, German, Scandinavian, and Spanish Sebastian was the most commonly used, with a ranking of #18 and a usage of 0.5212%.
