Names for newborn girls seems to have changed the most. Mary the most popular name then seems rather rare now. Mildred and Ruth even from my generation I cannot recall any. Doris also seems rare now as well as Dorothy. I would have thought with the evergreen popularity of Wizard of Oz.the name Dorothy wouod have remained popular. i cannot remember any contemporaryy of mine called Dorothy. Why is Betty and Elizabeth both on the list? I thought all Betty’s were Elizabeths. Also Marie but not Maria I guess Maria is just more common now.

Boys. I always thought Matthew was an always evergreen name. It is not on the list. The new born boys names seems so safe and boring except for Harold. Except for.seniors I cannot recall hearing that name of younger folk.
