The popularity of 'Robert' as a baby name is graphed here.  I'm in the mood for another doubleheader.

An old-fashioned kinda girl, 'Thelma' enjoyed a strong run during the 1st third of the 20th century, peaking at #25 in 1910.  Starting in the 1960s, though, she quickly tumbled out of view.

'Rex' proved to be a bit more of a steady performer, remaining mostly in the 200-range into late 1960s.  He disappeared for a few years (1999-2002) but quickly regained some of his old form, although it looks as though it'll be short-lived.
