The good people (I’m really just guessing here) at Zatonovo have a cool little tool where you can specify a name and it will show you how popular that name was from 1912 to 2012 on a state by state basis. I played with it for a while and there were a lot of interesting things that I noticed. But rather than just point them all out, I’ll pick two and ask you to see what you find. Here are my two:
- Lloyd has gone from about 70 per state down to about 1.
- Brad isn’t nearly as popular a name as I thought it was.
