    If I were a...

    Here's another fun game with SSA names. Find out what your name would have been if you had been born a boy (or girl)!

    1) Write out your first and middle names and birth year (if you want).

    2) Go to http://www.ssa.gov/cgi-bin/popularnames.cgi and search for the top 1000 names in your birth year.

    3) Find your name on the list and take note of the ranking of each name.

    4) If you are a girl, look at the list of boy's names in your birth year and find the male name that is ranked the same as your name. This is your new name.

    For example:

    My name is Madeleine Jean. In 1990, Madeleine was ranked #577. Jean was ranked #772.

    Based on the same name rankings in the boys' category, my new name would be Toby Raheem.
