    Name trends ?

    A friend and I were talking about how names become popular and I was wondering if there are any websites where its theorized *why* a specific name grew in popularity. For instance, I know Aidan most likely got its jump start due to Sex in the City (same with Charlotte)...I am looking for info on that sort of thing. Anybody know of blogs, websites etc? As somebody who is pretty clueless to pop culture over the past ten or so years, I am really wondering how certain names over the past decade became "big".
