Bonnie & Clyde Take a Dive Together, Then Attempt to Come Up for Air

They don't make it.

Bonnie moved on top in 1931, where she stayed until Clyde's "passing" in 1998.


According to She Knows Baby Names, the meaning of Bonnie is "beautiful", but then you probably already knew that.

Bonnie's best run was from 1940 to 1951, when she had a run of 12 years in the 30s.  Best years:  1951 and 1946 at #33.

"They're young.  They're in love.  They kill people."


Clyde's origin comes from the Scottish river of the same name.

Clyde peaked before Bonnie, enjoying his best years in the 1890s and the first decade of the 20th century, when he spent 18 years in the 50s.  Best year:  1904 at #51.

Never understood the reason for this song.

My grandfather was named Clyde.
My uncle had a dog named Clyde.

The dog was half-Basset and half-Labrador. A Bassador.

My Grandfather was all Iowan. An Iowan.
