There is a part of me that is absolutely fascinated with social statistics. I love charts (occasionally, though I do have a deep-seated hatred of the pie chart) and tables.
That's the reason I've been spending like 80% of my spare time here:

This thing is seriously fascinating. Try your name! Try the most common names of the girls and boys you went to school with! For me, it's interesting to see that there was a reason half of the girls in my class were named Sarah or Jessica or Rachel (even) or perhaps Heather or Hannah.
The accompanying blog is engrossing, also - the author helps in picking out oddities, including pointing out that "Wm" and "Geo" were both in the top 1000 for boys' names at the turn of the last century because these common abbreviations for William and George were often entered on birth certificates.
You can pick out trends in names - for instance, did you know that consonant clusters in general have fallen out of fashion (think Gertrude, or Wilbur) though starting a boy's name with "Tr" is the new hotness?
Try German names, like Helga and Hildegard - see when they were popular? It's like a social studies and history and geography lesson all rolled into one! (Why didn't I get my ass kicked in school more often? I sure don't know.) Try Adolph, for an interesting result... Or Laci, or Monica, or Shirley (Temple!) or Paris (Urkblah!).
It's your turn to go find your own, now. I'm not going to do all the work around here!
PS - Check the name "Logan". Ha!
