  • "Though fairly popular when Hortense Powdermaker and Hortense Calisher were born in 1896 and 1911 respectively, the name has not featured in the U.S. girls' top 1,000 since at least the outbreak of the Second World War, and unfortunately sounds nowadays like a blending of the words "whore" and "tense". It's in the same category as Ethel, Irma, and Beulah, all of which, along with Hortense, are considered terminally out of date." May. 19, 2008: Report as inappropriate
