Example : Eric

the names that go through decades. I can tell how old someone is by their name sometimes. Like I know a whole lot of Nicoles, Samanthas and Ashleys but no one uses those names anymore. They are a product of the 80's lol



Then theres the Lisas, Leslies, Phillips etc....products of the 70's

I think all of these but Mark are super popular. Matthew and John are super classic/generic names you see everywhere. Mason is so insanely popular in the last couple years, I've met countless boys 6 and under with that name.
