    I’m not sure why the link isn’t showing up (I accidentally C&P’ed the wrong link at first so I edited to fix it) but here it is:

    this is really interesting. ive noticed that the most popular girls names change every decade or so. i know tons of people

    around 70 and 80 years old named joan, mary, helen

    around 40 and 50 years old named linda, donna, nancy, barbara, cathy

    around 20 or 30 years old named jennifer, jessica, melissa, nicole, lauren, danielle

    around 20 years old named ashley, caitlyn, kristen, alyssa, kim, brittany

    and now it seems names at the top of the charts are sophia, isabella, emma, olivia

    i wonder why certain names peak to the top of the charts. then after that decade or two is over, they do sound dated. like now if someone wanted to name a baby nancy, that would sound weird because that is a dated name. this is one down side of popularity i think.

    It’s true! And then if you wait long enough, they come back into style (Emma, etc., now).

    This was an interesting article. My name, Jennifer, was part of the name fad from the 90s. In high school and college, I always had class with another Jennifer. It doesn’t help that my last name is also very common. I’m not sure what category my daughter’s name is in. Her first name is in the top 1,000 but her middle name is not. I was surprised at all the names in the top 1,000 that I had never heard used before.
