Cool list. I find it interesting how the majority of the names are either classic feeling names, or names that I associate with older people, and some of them are even popular enough to have multiple spellings listed (e.g. Steven/Stephen, Brian/Bryan), but some names that have shot up in popularity more recently (think [name_m]Lucas[/name_m], [name_u]Jackson[/name_u], etc) still aren’t up there. As parents get more adventurous with naming and the top names are given to fewer kids that they used to (i.e. [name_u]John[/name_u] was the top name in 1922, and [name_u]Liam[/name_u] is the top name now, but there were more babies named [name_u]John[/name_u] then than [name_u]Liam[/name_u] now), it will be interesting to see how lists like this change.
