    For girl: Patricia, Judith, Margaret, Helen, Ruth, Susan, Marjorie, Loretta, Audrey, I found these names off the social security list for the 1940s which might help you.
    For the little boy: Johnny, Edward, Robert, Walter, Jack, Frederick (Freddie), Thomas (Tommie)
    For the dad: Joseph, Henry, Arthur, Philip, Theodore, Oliver, Alexander, Victor

    For the girl: Naomi, Cecily, Kathleen, Miriam, or Helena. I also think the names listed above would work, but she may go by a nickname, which was common for girls of that era. There are lots of Susie, Sherrie, Dottie, Lindy, names in that generation.
    For the little boy: Alistair, Benjamin, Charlie, or Thomas/Tommie. A serious name on a precocious kid works well.
    For the dad: seconding Henry & Arthur; Niles, Maxwell, or Bernie (Sorry, these got a little random.)

    Good luck!

    Are they British? If so you'd need to research our name lists (if we have any) rather than Americas. If we don't have any lists then a basic search on Ancestry.co.uk should do the trick. It's free to use. Put in the common surname of 'Smith', gender, location and year of birth, hit search and it'll give you some clues as to names.

    For example:

    Men born in Liverpool in 1890: Charles, Dominic, Edward, Malcolm, Louis.
