The most popular girls name of the 1950's was Mary, the 60's was Lisa, The 70's Jennifer, Jessica took the top spot for the 80's AND 90's, and Emily swept the 2000's. Did you, your sisters or daughters find yourselves in that "most popular name" category?

Nope my name is Millicent. I think it's in the top 100 now though. My DD is Aubrey and I think she is in the top 25? Not quite sure.

My daughter is an Emily and was born before it became a wildly popular name.  I am named after my grandmother, and have a name that hasn't been used since the 50's.
