Find a Name â€“ I love the Baby Name Finder, it is a very comprehensive way for you to search for a name. You can search by gender, style, popularity, as well as, denote what letter it must start with.
Name Voyager â€“ I think the Name Voyager is interesting. It allows you to graph a name and track the popularity of it over time. If you type in Amanda (or just Ama) youâ€™ll find that my name was the most popular in the 1980â€™s, which is when I was born and explains why there were seven or eight Amandaâ€™s in each of my classes growing up. It reached its peak at rank 3 in the 1980â€™s. If you double click a name on the graph youâ€™ll be whisked away to that nameâ€™s page where youâ€™ll learn even more about it!
Map a Name â€“ the Namemapper, will show where geographically names are the most popular. Using my name again as an example: youâ€™ll find that in the 1980â€™s my name was popular in almost every state in the USA, but that it has tapered off significantly since then.
