Natalie Wood and her first/third husband, Robert Wagner, welcomed a baby girl in March of 1974.

The couple had starred in a TV movie called The Affair in 1973, so they named the baby Courtney after Wood’s character, Courtney Patterson.

The very next year, we see a distinct spike in the number of baby girls named Courtney.
