A Rose by Any Other Name

The Name Playground, is a fun website if you'd like to get some statistics about your name and the names of other folks you know.

The site will tell you in what years the name made the top 1000 list, when it was most popular, the average age of people with that name, and lots of other info. I found that most of the names I looked up (mine, my children, my grandchildren, my siblings, etc.) had very predictable results. One of the most interesting statistics given on the site is the average age of people with that name. Almost every name I looked up had an average age that was within a year or two of the age of the person whom I had in mind when I looked up the name.

When you have a little time to spend, try it out.
