Names from the 1900s?
I have to create a person that was born in the 1900s, I've decided most of the basic details about my person's life but i just cant think of a name. I need a first and last name that were popular in the 1900s for a girl. Thanks!!

Last names aren't "popular". They are inherited. "1900's" covers one hundred years. Lots to choose from. If you mean 1901 thru 1910, try the U.S., or country of your choice's 1900 or 1910 census.

Smith, Jones and Miller have been common - which isn't the same thing as popular - in the USA since white people started coming here.
