Brittany

Brittany, that perky name from the 80s, is now inexorably linked to a certain blonde pop princess. Both the name and superstar burned themselves out in the 90s and have been falling in popularity ever since, but one appears to have achieved a somewhat successful comeback. (Hint: it’s not the name.)
