Distinctive Baby Names from Oklahoma

In 1889, the Oklahoma territory held a land rush. Settlers were allowed, on a given date, to claim plots of land. Some settlers claimed land before they were supposed to, and they were referred to as "sooners," which Oklahomans are still called today. Parents in Oklahoma look back in time when choosing names for their children. You'll find classic boy names like Loyd and Doyle on lists of popular boy names and Imogene and Opal on lists of popular girl names.
