This probably won't be too interesting to non-Americans, but you must admit the page design is sweet.

I'm completely obsessed with names, I'm surprised I had never come across this.
*Bows* Many thanks, Zacq.

Meow?

I use del.icio.us, so little gets by me.

Anyone else an obsessive scanner of http://del.icio.us ?

  The spike in my name around the 80s is terrifying.
I am definitely going to try and name my child something obscure. I had 3 other Jennifers in my class for all of elementary school. :p

(also note: a Jennifer dating a Micheal both born in '81.... that's got to be original...)

  My name is not there...

I feel special and left out at the same time.

I guess you never had toothbrushes and stuff with your name on them as a kid either. (I always wanted one but they were inevitably sold out)

At least with the name thing you are left out _because_ you are special.

Nope...nor those little mini license plates with your name on them for your bike or whatever either.

  I know only 1 guy whose name is spelled the same as mine, Christophe. Others I know:

Kristof (x3)
Christof (x3)
Christopher


Quite a common name here.

  I showed someone who's daughter's name peaked right around the time she named her, and her second choice also peaked then. Freaky.

There's a restaurant in Sausalito (little bayside town) named Christophe.

  My name is painfully common, come to be expected. My kids names are less common though....

Now one thing this site was useful for was helping to prove a point I made to a buddy of mine. There has been no one named Dick after the 1970's. The chart just stops shortly after the 1970's.

No one names their kid dick now a days. Though Richard is still pretty common and from what I understand Dick is a nickname for Richard.

We had a teacher in school who's husbands name allegedly was Richard Wacker. I don't know if that was true, it could have been an urban legend, but her name was Mrs. Wacker.

For what its worth...

We had a teacher named Mr. Hiscock and everyone wondered if his wife's name was Edith.

  i had a richard bot as a teacher. but he changed it to southwell. but maybe dickbot is just something my peers invented, and wasn't a universally accepted insult.

  A former schoolteacher of mine supposedly once had a student called Koen Kalle.

Kalle can mean both a stupid woman or a penis in Flemish.

And on top of that, you know when you go to a doctor they call your last name first, which would be Kalle Koen for that guy.

A "kallekoen" is a turkey in Dutch.


I bet that kid really knew how to take a beating.

De Neucker (The fucker)
Van Der Pijpen (of the blowjob)
