Baby Name Wizard

I have just stumbled across the Baby Name Wizard Blog http://www.babynamewizard.com/blog/

Have you ever wondered whether your baby's name will affect his/her future earnings? Or what the most popular boys and girls names were in the 1880's (Try Pink for a boy - I kid you not). This blog has it all. Great fun.

Even more fun is the Baby Name Voyager on the same site http://babynamewizard.com/namevoyager/lnv0105.html If you type a name in it will show you a graph of the popularity of the name over the past 100 years. I was intrigued to find that my name was not very popular at the time I was named, but has risen in popularity since. No wonder people think I'm younger than I am ;-)

Til next time
