The Baby Names List, 1900-1999

The inspiration for this post is found here.

What Retiring Guy found interesting about the lists below is that 4 boys' names -- James, John, William, and Joseph -- were among the top 20 for the entire 20th century.  On the other hand, only three girls' names -- Elizabeth, Mary, and Margaret -- made the list more than half the time.
