How Popular Will Your Name Be in 25 Years?
Lew wrote a great piece yesterday asking for advice on how to name a baby. His baby is coming in October. Mine will arrive in August. As a parent there's tremendous pressure to get the name right. You want a unique name but not something that's going to make the top ten bizarre names list. Time Magazine just published the Baby Name Predictor. Check it out to see if a name you're considering is going to be popular over the next two-plus decades.
Not having a baby? Search your own name. I found that my name, Troy, peaked in 1994 and will continue to decline over the next 25years. wa wa waaa!
