    The Most Trendy Names in US History

    My husband sent me this link, because he knows how I love names! Interesting graphs and data to look at some of the most trendy names throughout the years, defined by having a huge spike in popularity, then an almost immediate decline.

    I saw this article too. The definition of a trend that includes a decline baffles me. Some trends are decades long like unisex (Randy, Jody, etc) in the 60s and 70s or Alex- (Alexis, Alexander, etc) in the 80s. We're definitely in a current trend of Aiden sounding names but that decline has yet to come. Taking only specific names seems limiting.

    It was an interesting read, and I am always interested in names that used to be trendy. I tried to research Deneen in 1964 and all that came up were ladies born in that year.
