1970s Baby Names

30 Popular Baby Names From the 1970s That Will Still Make You Feel Groovy

When you think of the 1970s, chances are your mind immediately goes to things like free love, bell bottoms, Farrah Fawcett's hair, and lava lamps. What you might not think of, however, is the pool of baby names that were born among all the political strife and pop culture (think rock and roll and The Mary Tyler Moore Show). If you're expecting and looking for a moniker you're not likely to find on a current baby-names list, consider these groovy ones, which were popular back when the Volkswagen van was as trendy as today's Prius.
