The Baby Name Wizard: NameVoyager (Java required)

As you type in the letters of the name, the graphical display of usage vs. year updates with all matching names. Put the pointer above a name to see its ranking. See “Abe” die out as a baby name in the ’60s, while “Abraham” enjoys a resurgence. Look at the evolution of “Monica,” “Ryne,” “Karen,” “Brent,” “Tim,” “PTG” and “Steve” through the decades.
