A lot has happened over the course of the last century. Prohibition started and ended, 12 American astronauts walked on the moon, the internet was invented and Facebook connected people across the globe. During this time, many trends have come and gone, including the popularity of more than a few names.
If a certain moment in time is especially close to your heart, freeze this frame forever by choosing a name for your baby that topped the charts in that particular year. MooseRoots, a genealogy data site by Graphiq, has made this endeavor easier than ever. Using 2015 data from the Social Security Administration, the MooseRoots team found the top three boy and girl names from 1915 to 2015.
Some names reigned for decades -- Mary, Michael, John -- while others enjoyed only a few years at the top -- Brittany, Hannah, Mason. Take a trip down memory lane to find the perfect name for your little bundle of joy.
