  2. Many of these name are very traditional.

  3. Lulu says:

    2 names from my family are in the top 10 there: my middle name and my paternal grandma’s first name.

  4. Julie Ross says:

    my dads name is #1 I love the older more "traditional" names!!!! all my babies have traditional names spelled the "normal" way 🙂

  5. Jeanetta says:

    My dads name is number 4 on the list…Johnnie

  6. ErinF says:

    I guess my mom’s parents were a little ahead of the trend–her name didn’t make the top 20 until the 1950s. My dad’s (middle name, at least) and in-laws’ names are all on here, though.
