Good looking man. Does anyone use the name “Ebenezer” anymore?

It’s from a Biblical place, so I’m not even sure if it was ever used as a name more than rarely. If so, Dickens probably killed it off with A Christmas Carol. According to BehindtheName, Ebenezer ranked only one time on the name charts for newborns since they began recording them (1880 for the US). It was number 764 in 1886 which was 0.006% of the population that year.
