Appeared on the SSA Top 1000 in the early 1950s. Most popular in the year 1959, when the name was given to 112 newborn babies. The state the name was most popular in was West Virginia, when it was given to 40 newborns in the year 1941. The name Drema was given to only 42 newborns across the entire United States during the same year, meaning only 2 "Baby Drema's" were born in all the states in the United States combined, outside of West Virginia, in 1941!

- Personal experiences with the name Drema: | Edit
Drema is my name. I was born in 1958, so I've had it for 58 years. In my lifetime I've only met one other person with this name, however she spelled hers "Dreama". I received a fair amount of teasing when I was younger regarding my name, the most frequent being called "Nightmare", however the teasing never really bothered me. As I've grown older, I've come to enjoy having such a unique name. Especially the fact that it is almost never forgotten by others. It feels somewhat special to always be remembered by other people.
