Common Baby Names from the ’60s Compared to 2021 Baby Names
Baby names have really changed from the '60s all the way to the year 2021. We're talking about over 50 years of naming babies.
Let me just say this for example:
Back in the '60s, the name Danny, Mike, Bruce, Lori, Mary, Karen, and even Susan were considered good common baby names, right?
Here in 2021, no one would ever name their child by any of those names. I personally like those old school common names from way back when.
