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

Marie was in the prom court of baby names at the beginning of the 20th century.  She peaked at #7 in 1901, 1903, and 1904, and remained in the top 10, except for one year (1906), through 1914 and in the top 100 through 1957.  She's currently showing signs of a struggle to survive.
