For those willing to lose huge chunks of their time to a website, I give you http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/babynames/ - all sorts of fun to be had...

Ooh! My name was the most popular in the year I was born! :teehee:

05-14-2007, 02:43 PM
Mine was the 4th most popular the year I was born... :roll:

Mine will never make the list...especially with my spelling...

Maybe the French list though?? :teehee:

Dustina is not in the top 1000 female names for any year of birth in the last 100 years.
Please enter another name.

my name was ranked #799 the year i was born.... :teehee:

05-14-2007, 03:04 PM
My name is ranked #85! Isabella is #4 though :shock:

Nathalie, your name is #6 here in the province of Québec! :teehee:

My oldest daughter's name was #63 the year she was born. My youngest daughter's was #527! :teehee: My name was #30 the year I was born.

I love the name Natalie, though I would have used that spelling. It was high on our list of name choices both times.

05-14-2007, 04:06 PM
I was #21, but it's 172 nowadays...

Since my mom is Canadian, and my dad was French (from France), I find it appropriate that they spelled it the way they did, although it has been misspelled more times than I can count over the years. What is weird, though, is that they named me after Natalie Wood. :teehee:

This was an interesting link...even though I'm not exactly happy with the SSA at the moment.

I was #3 the year I was born, and am #15 now. I do babysit a boy named Jacob though...

My name was the 727th most popular in the 50's. No wonder I never knew another kid named Jeremy when I was growing up. Then the 70's hit and it was one of the more popular names. I used to go crazy in stores when these kids mothers were calling them after all those years of being the only Jeremy around. :teehee:

05-14-2007, 05:18 PM
Oh wow. Both of my boys are 127 the year they were born....hmmm. I wish I could figure out what'll be 127 for this year to keep the tradition going :)

I was # 30 the year I was born and now its #36...not much change.

05-15-2007, 10:39 AM
Wow I never realised how popular mine was...lol
It spent 13 years in the top 5 now its down to 503. What a change.

Thanks for the link thats pretty cool!

Fun fact for you Buffy fans... Willow and Xander entered the top 1000 names for the first time in 1998 and 1999, respectively... :teehee:

What the heck, man?!?! I had a post typed up and it seriously just disappeared right before my eyes... like I'm using disappearing text or something! :noway: Weird.

I'll try again... My name, Janet, was 19th the year I was born and most popular in 1938 at 16th.

05-15-2007, 03:56 PM
sheesh MY name is in the hundreds for the last 36 years! It was the 10th most popular in 1942. :shrug:

hildegard was barely in the top 1000, and only from 1900-1918.
