    NameVoyager is a cool Java app that shows the popularity of names from 1880 to 2004.

    Type in your name and see when it was most popular, how many times it was given (per one million babies) and how it ranked among names during that decade.

    My results:
    Ryan
    Highest Number: 7,000+ per million (1980's)
    Highest Rank: #14 (1980's)
    Ranked #25 during the decade I was born (1970's)

    It also turns out my name has been used for girls. :eek: :p
