See how popular your (or any name) was over the last century. Some stuff I've learned:

"Marcia" was a man's name in the '20s and '30s.

My name peaked in the 60s.

"Adolph" was quite a popular name until the late '30s, and then dropped to near-nothing, but not completely disappearing until 1970 or so.

"Madison" went from near-nothing in 1980 to the top 3 by 2003.

"Taylor" went from being a boys'-only name to a mostly-girls' name in 1970.

"John" was on a steady decline all last century

Number-one names in 2003? Jacob and Emily.
