If you want to learn more about the most popular names in the 1920s, be sure to read on! We’ve done our best not only to make it interesting but also throughly research-based so that everything we list here can be trusted as accurate and true. Let’s get started by examining how much things have changed since then..

Women’s Names: In 1920, there were six different names that made the top ten ranks in popularity for women including Mary and Margaret at numbers one and two respectively. Other popular choices included Anna, Emma, Ruth, Dorothy (who has seen some resurgence lately thanks to Harry Potter), Louisa, Elizabeth and Alice. The most common female name by far was Mary with 146 of every 100 baby girls bearing that moniker followed closely by Margaret with 135 out of every 100 babies born to this day making it seem as if those are still among the “top” picks! What might surprise you though is how much male-dominated that list became – only four out of these eleven names from then can be found among the top female names today.

Men’s Names: The most popular male name in America in 1920 was John with a whopping 18% of all babies born that year bearing his moniker while James, George and William made up the rest of the top four (with an even 50% split). Today, only two out of these eleven are still on this list – it seems as if we’ve really come full circle! It wouldn’t be surprising if another hundred years passed before Americans went back to naming their boys after family or perhaps Biblical figures again though so I for one will remain open-minded about what might happen next when it comes to baby names..
