Very true. It will surprise you then that [name_f]Abigail[/name_f] didn’t even enter the Top 1000 until 1901! [name_f]Lydia[/name_f], however, is not as common, but it has remained steady in use over time. (Though it must be regional because I personally know/have known quite a few Lydias of all different ages.)
Grace, [name_f]Hannah[/name_f], and [name_f]Laura[/name_f] barely missed it, and I still say they are timeless, personally. They surprised me, too. [name_f]Deborah[/name_f] is quite out of favor now, though.
