How Recent and Popular is Your Name?

Standard

Thank you, Baby Name Wizard. I use this website way too much compared to a normal person. But names. Names everywhere. Etymology is beautiful.

I actually used everyone’s full name… Because 4/5 of the names listed below are nicknames. Guess who’s actual name is their nickname? Me.

Also, the first number is the real one. The second one is a similar name for comparison… Or, if you know the plan, you know.

Me: peaked in 2012 with 742 per million babies
peaked in 2012 with 742 per million babies

Zach: peaked in the 1990s with 5,595 per million babies
peaked in 2012 with 2,525 per million babies

Alex: peaked in the 1990s with 4,566 per million babies
peaked in the 1980s with 7,561 per million babies

Cas: peaked in the 1880s with 84 per million babies
peaked in the 1880s with 355 per million babies

Crea: peaked in the 1980s with 3,747 per million babies
peaked in the 1980s with 3,878 per million babies

Who’s the most current? Me. Who’s the least current? Cas. Who had the highest peak? Zach. Who had the lowest peak? Cas.

What this tells me: No one names their kid Cas because Cas’s name is Cas.
