Popularity of the Name Aniya
Aniyah is a very popular name in Washington D.C., Delaware, Louisiana and Mississippi (all states with a higher than average concentration of African-Americans). The less popular form of the name, Aniya, is not ranked on the Top 100 list in any state but enjoys semi-moderate success nationwide. Both names (Aniyah/Aniya) appeared on the female naming charts for the first time in the same year (1999). And both names have climbed in popularity over the past 10+ years (although Aniyah with an “h” has fared better on the charts). Other forms of the name (Janiya, Saniya, and Taniya) also appear on the charts (with lower popularity). In the past couple of years, Aniya has dropped in popularity somewhat but considering her “age” on the charts, the name has shown some remarkable achievements in usage nonetheless.
