I’m excited to announce that Pop Culture Baby Names: 1940s is available at Amazon!
The ebook highlights nearly 100 baby names that debuted in the U.S. data in the 1940s. All of them can be connected to ’40s pop culture and current events: comic strips, movie stars, radio programs, WWII headlines, etc.
These names are artifacts of their era and, put in order from 1940 to 1949, they become a quirky, one-of-a-kind timeline of the decade.
Many of the names remained rare, such as Angharad and Willkie, both of which were one-hit wonders. But a handful went on to see lots of usage, such as Sierra and Jade, both of which eventually reached the top 100.
The ebook will be available on other platforms eventually, and as soon as I have those links I’ll add them to this Pop Culture Baby Names: 1940s landing page.
That said, one advantage to being exclusive on Amazon for a few months is that I get to run some promotions. So there will be a few free days coming up…I’ll let you know when!
Finally, as I’m sure you’ve already guessed, this is the first book in an upcoming series. So if you like pop culture baby names, but aren’t too keen on the ’40s, sit tight—more decades are on the way! To be notified of each launch, either subscribe to NBN or sign up for the once-a-month Pop Culture Baby Names Newsletter.
