Can you guess at least one of the 3 most popular baby names from each decade?

In our previous issue of The Leader we published a list of the most popular baby names chosen in the United States in 2016, as recorded by the Social Security Administration. Anne Barron, a Leader Reader from Newtown, suggested this little quiz. Can you name at least one boy’s name and one girl’s name from the top 3 names of each decade? For the answers, scroll down.
