Not sure what to name your character? Maybe you should go with a classic. The following names have been popular in the U.S. since at least 1880 (when data on baby names was first collected). None of the male names have ever been out of the top 400, and none of the female names have ever been out of the top 500. So, if you’re stumped, simply close your eyes and point.
