We had fun on Facebook today trying to guess the most popular boy and girl baby names of the last 100 years.
It only took three guesses before Sarah G. correctly guessed the most popular girl name of the last 100 years was Mary.
Figuring out the boys name was a little more difficult. Jacob was the most popular answer, as three participants guessed the 37th most popular name of the last 100 years (1901-2010.) After answers of John, Chris, Michael and Joseph, we finally came up with the number one boy name of the last 100 years: James (thanks to Haley A. for getting that one!)
This is just some of the fun we like to have on the Adoption STAR Facebook page. If you haven’t done so already, come join the conversation by “liking” the Adoption STAR page.
Here is the full list of top 100 boy and girl baby names from the last 100 years.
