    I didn’t see Marie and maybe it’s because I’m older than dirt LOL

    My name is Camilla and I’ve never seen it on any list! I have to say though, I’m seeing more people with the name.

      Camilla, I have a friend whose 16 year old daughter is Camille, which I am guessing is derived from Camilla. I think yours and hers are such beautiful names.

    Ack. Typos. Darn voice recognition and bleary eyes.

    Have read the SS list for years. Love it. The name Patricia, I believe, was in the top 10 from somewhere around the 1910s to the the 1960s. Imagine that. I think the overall most popular girl’s name, and I haven’t read this for years, is Elizabeth.

    I’ve always been fascinated by name patterns. I esspecially believe that they are influenced by TV and movies, and apparently by the names actors and actresses give their children. Think about the whole Jennifer craze that, in my mind, came out after Love Story was released. How many Taras and Ericas did you know before the TV show All My Children?

    Where’s Kathy? About one-third of the girls in my 1973 high school graduating class were named either Pat, Debbie or Kathy. There were as many Kathys as Pats and Debbies. Was that just a NJ thing? BTW, I had a Spanish class where there were five of us named Debbie.

    My name is Linda, and for being the 2nd most popular names in the 1950s, my name is not mentioned anywhere!! Can you guess what my profession is?

      Hi Linda,
      Your name is on the Decades List, and I think you’re saying that it’s not on the Professions List, so I’m guessing you’re retired?
