THURSDAY THIRTEEN #131

THE THIRTEEN
MOST POPULAR GIRLS' NAMES
FROM 1961

I like the idea of revisiting America 50 years ago. So for this TT, I am listing the names given most often to baby girls born that year. (Source: Babycenter.com)

1) Mary
2) Lisa
3) Susan
4) Linda
5) Karen
6) Patricia
7) Donna
8) Cynthia
9) Sandra
10)Deborah
11) Brenda
12) Barbara
13) Debra

It does pretty much read like roll call from my childhood PE class.

  1. I don't see "Gal" among those names. ;)

    Interestingly, I don't remember knowing many "Andrea"s as a kid (three that I can think of), but as an adult I know quite a few Andrea who are within a few years of my age. Apparently it was the 28th most popular name in the 1970s (and presumably more popular in the earlier part of that decade).

  3. If you were a List or a Susan you were instantly popular in the day.

    Have a great Thursday!
