James DeLong (1946-2017) Warren Area High School class of 1964

James' younger brother Eldo ("Dody") was a good friend of mine in high school.  Curious that none of the siblings and their spouses are mentioned by name.

The popularity of James as a baby name is graphed here.  Let's take a look at daughter Jessica.

Jessica struggled to, ahem, make a name for herself during the 1st half of the 20th century, but she ruled the final quarter, spending 25 years (1976-2000) in the top ten, 9 of them (1985-1990, 1993-1995) at #1.  Since the turn of the century, however, her popularity has taken a series of hits.
