What's in a name?

This name thing is really cool.

I had a friend in college who told me he'd never met a Barbara outside of a nursing home. Thanks, Tim. Slight exaggeration, but check this out: my name's popularity peaked in the 1930s & 40s. It was ranked at #3 for both of those decades, and #6 in the 1950s. By the 1970s, when I was born, it was at #73.
