Titanic-Inspired Baby Names

The 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic was this Sunday. There have been a lot of events commemorating the lives lost in the tragedy – from special memorials to even the 1997 blockbuster hit (with Leo and Kate!) making its 3D debut in theatres. (Did you catch it in 3D – what was it like?)

In honor of the anniversary, we rounded up the top baby names from 1912 from the Social Security Administration. We’re guessing a lot of the passengers on board had these names! And if you’re wondering where Rose and Jack fit on the list, well, Jack’s a nickname of 1912’s number one boy name, John, and Rose was number 15 on the list!

Top 10 Boys’ Names in 1912: John, William, James, Robert, Joseph, George, Charles, Edward, Frank, Thomas Top 10 Girls’ Names in 1912: Mary, Helen, Dorothy, Margaret, Ruth, Mildred, Anna, Elizabeth, Frances, Marie

Will you take any inspiration from these names? Are you planning to see Titanic in 3D?
