First Name Popularity

The blog post Fun with Flourish – how popular was your name in Victorian Britain? is worth a look.

Based on 22 million birth records transcribed by the volunteer UK Local BMD project shows the percentage of all transcribed records in which the first name appears.

There are 143,259 unique names over 177 years, over seven geographically diverse counties — mainly English.

Check the trends for your own name from the link in the Fun with Flourish blog post.
