The popularity of 'Ruth' as a baby name is graphed here.  Let's take a look at 'Violet'.

'Violet' had a respectable run during the first 3 decades of the 20th century, peaking at #74 in 1919.   She went into a mid-century decline, bouncing in and out of the top 100 a couple of times.  Since 1998, she has made a spectacular comeback and is still achieving new heights.
