From the Writer’s Circle: Women’s names by decade

Advertisements

Published by: Kawanee Hamilton

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!

  1. The US Social Security (ssa.gov) website lists top baby names in the USA. It’s humorous to me that some of the old names are starting to come back into fashion (like Emma, Clara and Emily). Mary was the number 1 name until a few decades ago. Remember “Splash,” where Darryl Hannah played a mermaid (Her boyfriend named her Madison)? That’s when girls named Madison started showing up. 🙂

    Thanks for the reminder that name popularity, like skirt height, rises and falls throughout the decades.

  2. I am curious to know what women’s names will be 20 years from now. Will we see repeats or will new feminine syllables reshape a woman’s name? I am writing a future story, but I can’t settle on the characters’ names.
