    Groovy baby names that rocked the 1970s

    The 1970s were a decade that saw peace and love disintegrate into disillusionment and distrust. It was a time when the president was found to be a crook and the government was exposed as too proud to admit defeat in Vietnam. American film peaked in the 1970s, and the decade was the era of punk, funk, and the last album from Thelonious Monk. People wore bell-bottoms and platform shoes, and, somehow, disco was a thing for a while. And of course, through all of those strange years, people had children and named them all sorts of things. The kids grew up to be dubbed Generation X (flannel, MTV, indie film renaissance, hip-hop)—they started Google, YouTube, and Tesla.

    With The Post in theaters, Slow Burn on the podcast charts, and another presidential scandal raging, the 1970s feel newly relevant. So the wonks at Stacker have poured through Social Security’s historical archives to calculate the most popular baby names of the decade. Unsurprisingly, Richard, Millhouse, and Nixon all didn’t make the list.
