Hi, An earlier thread prompted this question. Has anyone notice that certain first names and first names ending in particular suffixes tend to break down according to generation, ethnicity, region? For instance, lets take the name Hazel. First and foremost unless someone is named after a family member the name went out of fashion in the 30's and 40's. Depending upon the ethnicity and region it might be spelled Hazel or Hazelle but pronounced Ha-zel .Or it might have a variation such as Hazelene or Hazeletta. Or you might hear a middle name of Mae or belle with a black woman of a certain age while Sue or jean might serve a white female of the same generation... Has anyone else noticed this?
