You are right, Aimée really sound as a name from the roaring twenties. It is a nice name: its pronunciation (in French) is quite mellifluous and it means "loved". Surprinsingly, these names are somehow going throught a revival amongst a certain population in France and I would not be surprised to see more of them (Clement, Grégoire, Antoine, Adrien, Claire, Julie, Valentine ...).
However René is more typical from the forties and fifties: I think it will have to wait for a few decades to become popular again (like André, Georges, Agnès...)
