This name may as well be a synonym for a certain blonde Hollywood bombshell. Though she’s been gone since 1964, Marilyn Monroe still owns her first name, which could explain why it feels like a throwback to the 20th century. Though other old-fashioned names are super-popular, the current generation hasn't embraced this one. When Mariah Carey had twins in 2011, she named the girl after the legendary actress—but instead of calling her Marilyn, she went with the cooler Monroe.
