Baby Names

It’s too late for me (at least as far as this baby is concerned), but this website is really fun if you’re looking for baby names: http://ssa.gov/OACT/babynames/ You can search the popularity of a name and it will show you how similar names compare. You can also search for the top baby names going all the way back to 1880 (surprisingly similar to the 2007 list). For example, the year I was born my name was the 174th most popular name, but for the last 8 years it hasn’t even broken the top 1000. And don’t worry, no one will judge you for playing with it even if you have no plans to have a baby. Ever.

Also, this article has both one of the weirdest names I’ve ever heard (Folbe, a girl) and a nice snarky comment on Ashley Simpson’s horror of a baby name.

Thanks Erin!

    Strangely my name is far more popular than I ever imagined. It was #43 in 1979 and has even hovered in the 500-600 range since then. I figured it wouldn’t even make it!

    My name (Sarah) was #5 the year I was born, and #18 last year in 2007. Way to be original, parents. My sister is Jessica, and that was the #1 name the year she was born, and #42 last year. I guess both are better than what my dad wanted to name us: Zeta Moon for me (doesn’t that sound like a pot smoking hippie name?) and Roxanne for my sister.
