* Names that would still be available for circulation as of 1961 (pending reanalysis of later decades): Audrey, Carol, Diane, Donna, Edna, Gracie, Ione

From 1911 to 1960, the number of retirements by letter:
A - 4
B - 9
C - 4
D - 7
E - 4
F - 7
G - 3
H - 4
I - 3
J - 4
K - 3
L - 0
M - 1
N - 3
O to W - 0 each

Also, Carla would still have been Carla and Hattie would have been Inga. Oh and Flora would be Helena. If these are any indication.

The letters F, C and I are now all very close in the amount of retired names. With Florence gone, F now has 9 retired names. C is still at 9 and I is at 11
