Ooh that was fun. That's my birth year so I think I had it pretty easy; I just thought of my peers growing up. I got 115 before time ran out.

Ok--that was fun. I got 140 of them, but didn't get the number 2 name (which I should have known!). Oh well. :-)

Fun, but rough.  I came in at 114, and also missed #2, for instance, even though I knew bunches of them growing up.  Under pressure, I started blanking, and resorted to dumb things like, "what was that girl's name I knew in 3rd grade?  I'm sure it would be in here if I could remember what it was." lol.  Most of the answers I missed should have been obvious, if I weren't trying so hard to think of them....

You guys did way better than I did. Apparently I'm no good under pressure either hyz!

Thanks for sharing! I got 168. I didn't think to include all of the alternate spellings though - tricky!

Sporcle baby name games have been one of my biggest time wasters lately.  It is so much fun to try all the different variations they have too.  I think my favorite has been the top 100 of the 20th century for boys & for girls, both of which I did eventually beat!
