What's in a name?

It's always interesting to read about other people's names (well, it is to me) and groaning about the parent's selections for new-borns. As a "John", my name was a safe bet - no weirdness there and also named after my grandfather. My mother wanted Miles and thank the stars she didn't win that particular discussion.

This article is a good read. Also, you can visit the Namebrain and check out your name's popularity over the last century.

Looks like "John" is still failing fast after decades of domination.
