The Name Voyager, from Baby Name Wizard, is a fascinating visualization of the US Social Security Administration's historical database of names. Enter part or all of any name and this little Java application will dynamically plot how many babies were given that name during each decade, instantly giving you a sense of when (if ever) that name was popular. I already knew Josh was the name of the 70s because there was always at least 2 others in my class. I learned, however, that Otis was popular near the turn of the century and Logan is more recently on the scene (more for boys than girls).
