Guess the year
Which year were the following names from? Method: I looked at the top 1000 and chose the highest-ranked name from each letter of the alphabet. This makes the game somewhat tricky, as some names were ascending in popularity while others were declining. A more representative way would have been to choose names at their peak, but I didn't have the energy for that.
Angela, Brenda, Christine, Dawn, Elizabeth, Felicia, Gina, Heather, Irene, Jennifer, Kimberly, Lisa, Michelle, Nancy, Olga, Patricia, Rebecca, Susan, Tammy, Ursula, Valerie, Wendy, Yolanda
Interesting discover: The following names were also in the top 1000 for girls (at least one in the top 600!): David, Richard, Mark, Joseph, Christopher, Charles, Kevin, Thomas, Paul, Steven, Christian, and Jeffrey
