This is funny! White Bread…

a very common term IMO

from link
You Can’t Call It It classifies these names as, “Mid-Century Modern.” Name Nerds classifies these names as either “Classic Conservative” or “Classic Outmoded.” I call them White Bread names because these names convey the same image to me as the enduring primary colored Wonder Bread packaging.
Seems we made the tail end of the White Bread first names list
