When I saw this headline, my first thought was, "I have to know at least one baby girl with a name on this list."  I did- my niece's name is  Josephine (#19) Jean!

Although I don't know of any other babies with names from this list, there are many I adore and hope they don't go away.  Are these female names going to be extinct?  Do you know a baby with one of these names?
