The baby name wizard’s name voyager

Name Voyager is a fun web-gadget. You just type in your name and the wizard tells you how popular it’s been over the ages.

So my little family in order of number of times the name was used per million babies born today:

very popular
Ranked in the top 25/1000 in 2006.

Then Hugamuga:
getting more popular
No 371 in 2006.

This is Groover:
Groover\'s name voyager graph
Ranked 826 in 2006.

And finally Dippity:
er... none
Not in the top 1000 since the 1960s.

Emily is the most popular girls’ name in 2006, and for boys? Jacob. The lists.
Naming trends… did you know that hundreds of babies are named “Unique” in the US every year? Poor darlings.

Warning: This is a BIG timewaster!

  1. I just checked out my kids names and my girls names are very popular now. But when they were born people went HUH??? So as always I am ahead of my time *snort*

  2. I played with this for both my babies… I love a name that is not common, but then is not ‘made up’ or bizarre either.

    I love the fact neither of my boy’s names make the grade 🙂
