Number 19 in my decade and didn't even make the top 50 for 2008. I didn't think Janet had gotten than old fashioned.

Lin said...

I don't think anyone names their daughter Linda these days, but, yep, back in the 50's it was one of the top names. It's a wonder I don't run into other Lindas all the time!

Judi said...

I didn't realize my mother was so trendy in the 1950s. I used to complain, of course, that I'd have to use Judith when I was older or I'd be totally humiliated. Little did I know my name would be the least of my concerns!

I saw CAROL in the 1950 grouping... LOL

Queen-Size funny bone said...

that was cool.

Marilyn said...

Mine didn't make the list!

Our town paints the fire hydrants to look like animals.

Travis said...

Very basic David and Michael and Thomas...were popular when I was born in the 60's. My name didn't make the top 50.

But that's cool because that means I'm more unique!

Mo said...

According to the Facebook application like this, "Morgen" for a male name is "unique" ~ I'm one of a kind, that's for sure!

My name was pretty popular in the 50s and 60s; most people don't give their daughters my name anymore, though.
