Are these popular baby names from the 1970s or the 2000s?

You may even have one of the names on the list!

A lot of names have stood the test of time, expanding through decades and continuing to be popular to this day. Today we are focusing on names in the 1970s and the 2000s.

Some of these names are groovy, some are classic and other are specific to the decade. In 2021, Liam, Noah, Levi, Asher and Ava took the world by storm as the top baby names of the year. Today we want to look at the Michaels and Heathers of the world!

Using the names that have topped the charts on the Social Security Administration's list of most common names per decade, can you tell if these names are from the 1970s or the 2000s?

Good luck!

7 of 12. Whoo, I hope no one asks for my advice when choosing a child's name! I'll just suggest "Robert or Roberta"!

I worked with a lady in the 80s who in the 70s had named her 3 boys Jeremy, Jacob and Joshua. I always teased her she had watched too many episodes of 'Here Come the Brides'.

"You got 6 out of 12" ------------Good try! You may not have lived up to your name with this score, but we have faith you'll score high on the next one! Do you have one of the names mentioned above? No, I do not. 6 out of 12. Which is not very good for me. I got 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 10 wrong.

Don't lament too much. "Santana" should have made the list, but in recognition of his talent:

Boy he can make a guitar sing.
