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

  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.
