I was sorting through my favorites list and came across this cool site that I found when Joy and I were looking at baby names for Charis. You can type a name (or just part of a name) in the upper-left corner and it shows you the popularity of the name over time (since 1900) using a really neat dynamic graph display. I learned that my brother, my sister and I were all named near the peak of popularity for each of our names, while Joy was named almost at the low point of popularity for her name.
