Popularity: this week.

Ann, the name of the sainted mother of the Virgin Mary was among the top girls' names for centuries, in both the original English Ann spelling and the French Anne. Both left the Top 100 around 1970 and show no signs of returning--in the last two years Ann has been at its lowest point ever. Once a go-to middle name, Ann has lost its stature in that position as well.

More popular today: Hannah, Anna, or even Annabelle.
