It's interesting how girl names are much more sporatic over the years, while the boy names are more stable.
It's much easier to analyze the boys names.
The 90's have some stupid a55 pansie names: Brandon, Joshua, and Tyler.
It's interesting that "Brian" was a hot name in only the 70s.
Charles was a solid name until the end of the 50s. And William was a solid bet until the mid 70s.
Now Michael, Matthew, and Christopher the solid bets.
Emily has been in the top three for the last 7 years? wow.
Elizabeth has seen a revival. That's rare to see a revival after 60 years.
The most shocking is to see Mary at number one for a solid 77 years & either number one or two for 85 consectutive years, then in a matter of 8 years, it completely falls off the map. What happened in the 60's that everyone avoided Mary? ....oh maybe it was cuz people started calling pot Mary Jane. I bet that's it. Interesting. A cultural reference knocks off the most popular name.
Mary sounds like an old-fashioned name. But then there's Something about Mary
