Rank these "Boomer" names

I went through the SSA boy lists from the 40s to the 60s and chose known names that were not super popular and did not get super popular later on. What do you think of these results?

-[name_m]Vincent[/name_m] (nn [name_m]Vin[/name_m])
-[name_m]Ernest[/name_m]
-[name_m]Ralph[/name_m]
-[name_m]Floyd[/name_m]
-[name_m]Antonio[/name_m]

Any other suggestions?

I actually really do love [name_m]Ralph[/name_m] & [name_m]Ernest[/name_m]! :slightly_smiling_face:

Ralph was my grandfather’s name! I hated it, but it’s growing on me a little now and it’s actually becoming fairly popular for young children again in my area. I know one young [name_m]Ralph[/name_m] and another young [name_m]Ralphie[/name_m].

Ralph would be rather refreshing on a little boy. I also know of a young [name_m]Ernest[/name_m] (goes by [name_m]Ernie[/name_m]) and it actually suits him rather well

I am not at all a fan of this style, but if I had to pick I think the most usable are [name_m]Ralph[/name_m] and [name_m]Floyd[/name_m].
