What's in a name?

The other day I got an email from my friend telling me about a cool site. It shows the popularity of a name in the last hundred years. It has a very slick interface. As you type the name in, it shows you how many babies per million were named that name. If you put your cursor over the graph you can move it from decade to decade to see the rank of the name in certain decades.

ok, enough explaining. it’s probably just easier to show it to you. It takes a few seconds to load because it is a Java app, but it’s worth the wait. You can see it here
