As a forename, Hayes has been present in the U.S. since the late 19th century. In that time Hayes only had a rare frequency and was not very popular among the American parents. Between 1912 and 2009, Hayes disappeared from the charts of the most popular male names in the U.S and fell off from the top 1000 names. Hayes made a sudden comeback to the charts 2009 which can be associated with the fact that Kevin Costner named his son Hayes.
