Baby Name Wizard web site - great visualization example

I'm glad to have found this link again in a post from VSL. It is such fun and a great example of how using visualization and a multidimensional tool opens up insights into aggregate data. Looks like the popularity of my first name peaked in 1940 and my second name on my birth certificate never made it out of the 1900s. No wonder I've substituted my family of origin name for it!

The Baby Name Wizard web site

Requires Java to load.

Here is a link to the VSL post on this site.
