Must See 13/01/2020

A theory brought to light by Kidspot has people wondering if the old saying 'History always repeats itself' is going to happen in the new 2020 decade.

The theory talks about a strange '100-year-rule' that sees popular baby names from a century ago undergo a renaissance and start to become popular again.

With the 100-year rule in mind, a glance at the top 5 most popular American boys’ and girls’ names of the roaring ‘20s as per US social security records could predict the cool monikers of the future.

Here are the top 5 most popular boys’ and girls’ names of 1920s America:

2. Dorothy
3. Helen
4. Betty
5. Margaret

Most popular US boys names of the 1920s

But, we guess we will have to wait around 12 months to see if the '100-year-rule' will ring true in this decade...
