The Popularity of Sherry as a Baby Name: 1926-1995

The name's meaning

According to the Social Security Administration annual list of popular baby names, Sherry peaked at #48 in 1962, the same year that the Four Seasons had their first smash hit.

Debuted on Billboard's Hot 100 singles at #65 for the week ending August 25, 1962, just before I started junior high.  It was one of the first 45 RPM records that I bought.

Jumped into the top 10 at #1 in its 4th week.

Spent 5 weeks at #1, 14 weeks on the chart overall.
