    For a girl, my favorite is Marilyn. I just love that name!

    For a boy, I love love love the name Rupert. My mom wanted to name my brother Rupert, but my father would have NONE of that. hahaha

    If you're looking for a list, though, here's a good site to visit:

    http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com/search.ph...

    In the drop down box entitled "year of birth" just put in a year you're looking for for old names (ex: 1930, 1940, 1950) It will give you a list of the most popular names of that year! :)

    Source(s): babynamesworld.com My opinion :)
