Baby Names Cubby

Popularity for Top 1000 Names for Babies Born Between 1900 and 1910 in the United States

You've seen the top names for 2004, but have you seen the top names for 1900? Some are VERY different, other's aren't. The following are all names are from Social Security card applications for births that occurred in the United States from 1900 through 1909. The most popular 1000 names of the 1900s were taken from 1,467,529 male births and 3,104,799 female births.

Were baby boys actually named Mary, Lucille, Josephine, Evelyn or Doris in 1900 as you will find below? Probably not. The SSA's caveat: please note that name data are not edited. For example, the sex associated with a name may be incorrect. Entries such as "Unknown" and "Baby" are not removed from the lists. Keep in mind that record keeping was by hand and the potential for mistakes was great. But here it is, as they created it, the most popular names from 1900 through 1909.
