From the 1880s until the 1960s, the most popular American Baby Boy Names were John and Robert, while the most popular baby girl name was Mary. These names started falling out of fashion in the sixties, as more and more Americans grew minds of their own. 

By the decade of 2000-2009, Mary had dropped to 65th place on the list of most popular baby names, with Emily finishing first. Of the boy names, John was in 18th place, with Jacob coming in first out of all American baby boy names.
