Abner became popular in the 1930s, when the the comic strip Li’l Abnerbrought the name into mainstream American consciousnes. The name was a mainstay all the way through to 1977, when the strip ended its run. With the arrival of Crabner, the decades-long void left in the world of baby naming by Abner’s departure has finally been filled. Some critics have even claimed that Crabner surpasses its ancestor’s beauty. Whether that’s true or not, this name is of the highest quality. Even parents with shellfish allergies should seriously consider giving Crabner a try.
