Let’s look at the hottest 1919 girl names.
These are the names I might have blogged about way back when, as the first World War drew to a close and Mary Pickford was the brightest star in Hollywood.
The hottest 1919 girl names would all be right at home in 2019. Except they’re all relatively rare – or, at least, most of them are less common than they were a century ago.
I’ve stuck with ten names, but I could have kept going. To make your own list, visit the names section of the US Social Security Administration site.
The Addie names are white hot today, with multiple spellings of Adeline/Adelyn in the US Top 1000. Adelina, yet another version, can be found there, too. But it’s relatively underused today, though it did appear in the rankings at #543. On paper that’s better than the name’s 1919 performance, but in 1919, the name was skyrocketing in use. Today, it seems to be on gentle decline. But I think it could still appeal to families looking for an alternative to Isabella.
I’ve yet to write about Adelina, but check back and I’ll update when I do.
