1930 Names - Boys

I finished the top names of 1930 for boys. Here it is!

Top names of 1930 - BOYS

There were some interesting names in 1930. Wow.

There were lots of ranks, offices and titles (numbers are how many kids got that name in 1930):

Admiral 8
Colonel 13
Commodore 12
Council 8
Doctor 6
Duke 33
General 47
Governor 12
Judge 51
Lawyer 31
Lieutenant 5
Major 143
Minor 24
Pastor 5
President 5
Prince 63
Proctor 7
Saint 6
Sargent 5
Squire 5




I shouldn't get too excited-- Judge, Duke, Prince, and Major still show up on name lists in the 21st century... but Lieutenant? And I'm glad I'm not named Minor!

There were some good adjectives:
Bland 6
Craven 7
French 13
Handy 11
Moody 15

Reedy 8
Smiley 10
Worthy 7

and even better nouns (and a couple of verbs):
