Dinosaurs, dodo birds and Garys… they could all be extinct soon.

From HuffPost:

“Fewer than 450 boys in America were named Gary in 2013, compared to around 38,000 in the early 1950s, according to OurBabyNamer.com. And in the UK, the name is becoming even less popular.

According to a graph based on Office of National Statistics data, only 28 British-born boys were named Gary in 2013, compared to 235 in 1996.

Gary hasn’t made it to the top 100 most popular names since the 1980s accordingbabycentre.co.uk.”


If your name is Gary, you could be the last of your kind!
