1960s Baby Names

30 of the Most Popular Baby Names From the Flower-Power-Packed 1960s

From the Vietnam War to the civil rights protests, the 1960s were a decade of massive cultural change. There were moments of celebration, like when the first man landed on the moon or when the Beatles were formed and changed music forever. There were also moments of mourning, like when John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. were assassinated. It will forever go down as the decade of sexual revolution, the birth of Woodstock, and the rise of the antiwar flower-power slogan. And if you're a parent-to-be, seeking a timeless baby name that's rooted in one of the most impactful decades yet is an exciting option.
