    Hello,

    My name is Roy and I am a dinosaur.
    My name peaked in the 1890s - was ranked 19th then.

    I am an old soul :chuckle

    What a neat link! Elizabeth peaked in the 1880's but made a comeback in the 90's. It's a classic. I don't have too worry too much that my name will go out of style.

    Curious fact:

    The name "Fonda" was recorded 922 times in the 1960s.
    There is no record of that name either before or after the 60s!

    Well, that explains why in 7th grade, there was at least one other Amy in each of my classes. I finally made it to my last period, and kept waiting for another "Amy" to respond when called. I was the only one!!!

    My son's name started an ascent in popularity the year he was born. I'm such a trendsetter!

    Also try the baby name site at ssn.gov - the social security admin. It's also a cool site.

    I am all over the board. One of those biblical names you hear quite a bit. I did heard one of those unique names I really like yesterday that belonged to an older woman....Anneliesse! nice, huh?

    There is a similar name that I really like, Annalisa. A girl from my high school had that name, and then a few years ago, I met the very young granddaughter of one of my neighbors, and she had that name as well. It has not been in the top 1000 names in any decade, though.

    Yes, that version is nice, too. I guess it being seldom used (not on the top names list) makes it all the nicer (to me) then.
