The popularity of Richard as a baby name is graphed here.   It's 'Wilma' time.

Wilma's best years occurred during the 1920s and 30s, when she peaked at #62 in 1925.   After 1950, though, she quickly fell out of favor, disappearing after 1973.

She did experience a 5-point boost in popularity from 1960 (#362) to 1961 (#357), which could be attributed to...
(a) Wilma Rudolph (won 3 gold medals in the 1960 summer Olympics)
(b) Wilma Flintstone (first prime-time animation show, premiered on September 30, 1960)
(c) Both
(d) Neither
