𓃹 unique & obscure 1940s caf

it’s been a while since i’ve been on nameberry so i thought i’d come back with another one of these threads!! i’ve already made a 1900s, 1910s, 1920s, and 1930s version so if you like this one go check those out. this has been a bit of a fun history & name trend learning project for me and i’m excited to get back into it! big changes are happening in the mid 1900s!!
