If, like me, you find names and their role in modern society endlessly fascinating, this is the coolest site you'll see all day.

But like all good sites, it raises questions:

  • What happened in the 1980s that made Pierre spike so suddenly?
  • Who in their right mind would name their daughter William?
  • Why is nobody called Mildred or Elsie any more?
  • What the hell kind of name is Moises? Is that just a good Jewish name for boys born in Brooklyn?
  • And speaking of Brooklyn, why is no one following Posh and Beck's example for their son?

Answers, dammit! I want answers!
