"What's in a name? An analysis of American baby naming trends from 1918 to 2018", by Jay Lewis, is a series of interactive info-graphics on everything:
- Name diversity over time
- how gender-flexible names have been assigned over time
- A charting tool compares up to four names at a time, and shows any decade's "trendy" and "popular" names in the long run. (Or chart every name that begins with "Th" if you like, using a regular expression: ^Th\w+$ )
- The page begins with a detailed explanation of historical data limitations.
