The first thing everyone does at this site is look up their own name.
Having the now-unusual name Harvey, I was very surprised to discover that, as late as the 1930′s, it was in the top 100 for most common boys’ names.
By the year 2000, it had fallen out of the top 1000.
After your own name, you will start looking up names of friends/spouses/lovers (I only had to look up one, your mileage may vary).
Then things will start getting weird.
In my case, I checked out the popularity of the name “Susan” for boys. Turned out it became a minor fad in the 30′s, but stopped dead after the 60′s:
Coincidentally, Johnny Cash released “A Boy Named Sue” in 1969.
My theory? A whole bunch of old men got their asses beat, and fathers in general wised up because of it.
There may or may not be a Tea Party metaphor lodged in this story.
