How to use: Type names in the box below, then move your mouse over the graph to see annual rankings. Or see some naming trends.
Note on the data: I calculated absolute rises and falls by subtracting the number of births in the name's least popular year from the number of births in the name's most popular year. I calculated proportional rises and falls by dividing the number of births (corrected for the annual birthrate) in the name's most popular year by the number of births (corrected for the annual birthrate) in the name's least popular year. If you would like to do your own analysis of the data, you may wish to see the ONS's raw data and the script I used to calculate these trends. Please do get in touch with feedback.
You can hire me for data visualization projects, follow me on Twitter to hear about future projects, or email feedback.
