Visual Baby Name Trends site

NameTrends.net is a fantastic interactive site that charts and maps the popularity of baby names over the last century in the U.S.  You can look at the most popular names, or search for specific names to see their results.  The chart above shows the top 20 baby names from the 2000's decade (10 boys and 10 girls).  You can see that those names also had some popularity at the end of the 19th century.

The site also allows you to map the name popularity by state.  The slider across the top allows you to see the geographic distribution by year.

There are a lot of baby names websites on the internet to help you find a name for your new little one. I found this site very useful and easy to navigate. It's located at http://www.findbabynames.com. As the name implies, it's a great website to find baby names with their meanings and origins.

A name with a good meaning is preferred by many people. The important fact to remember while naming your baby is that it is going to remain with him/her to the end of their life.
