We've freshened up the Baby Name Wizard NameVoyager with the latest name popularity data. Take it for a spin! (If you haven't visited the NameVoyager, plan on spending a while...it's a name-lover's playground.)
The stats now run decade by decade from 1880 through 2005, with one new wrinkle. The past three years are included fully and independently to give a detailed look at the most current trends. Some names to look at to take advantage of this new view:
- See the sudden rise and almost-as-sudden fall of Kanye.
- Jacob is still the #1 name, but notice that it's not standing still.
- Two of the hottest girls' names of the decade, Olivia and Isabella, seem to have reached their peaks. Two other names stepping up in that genre: Amelia and Angelina.
- Watch Nevaeh soar, then soar some more, then even more...
In other news, I've heard the many requests for a babynamewizard.com forum and I'll look into the feasibility of it. Also, forgive me if I'm a little slow on the draw the next couple of weeks. The kindergarten year is drawing to a close, and vacation beckons!
