NameVoyager: Baby Name Wizard Graph of Most Popular Baby Names

No comments
NameVoyager is an excellent example of a simple line graph that provides quick, meaningful information. Not only that, it's really cool too!
  1. Type a name and the graph updates.
  2. If there is more than one name, it will show all of the choices.
  3. Type a name and hit enter to show just that name.
  4. Mouse over the graph and you can see the rank in each decade.
Try it right here.
