The popularity of Howard is graphed here.  Let's look at Rebecca.

For the first time since before 1900, Rebecca dropped out of the top 200 in 2016.  In her prime, she spent 67 years (1940-2006) in the top 100, peaking at #10 for 2 years (1973-74).

The Daphne du Maurier novel was published in 1938.  Alfred Hitchcock's movie adaptation was released in 1940.
