Lamarcus -
keeping with the times

Lamarcus is a phenomenon of Generation X and Y. Previously, the name wasn't really on the radar of expectant parents. Schoolkids of the early 20th century probably didn't have classmates named Lamarcus - until this very name unexpectedly cried out for attention and peaked in popularity at rank number 868 in 1984. Although it has never reached the top 100 list, this boys' name seems to have been in vogue for a while, which makes Lamarcus really in tune with his generation.

In years where the graph has no value, the name Lamarcus was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

By the way, the most common first letters of boys' names are J and A, while X and U are the least common initials of boys' names.
