Golden Girl Names – Blanche & Bea, Rose & Rue

Old is new again the world of baby names, so I thought I’d take a look at the names of TV’s Golden Girls:

Actor Character
Beatrice (“Bea”)
Betty
Eddi Rue (“Rue”)
Estelle
Dorothy
Rose
Blanche
Sophia

Only three of the above–Sophia, Rose and Beatrice–ranked in the top 1,000 in 2006 (at 9th, 350th and 966th, respectively). Are any of the others due for a comeback? (Estelle? Dorothy, perhaps?)
