    I noticed a pretty big jump from #38 to #25 from 1966 to 167. I found that a woman named Stephanie Kwolek patented Kevlar in 1966.

    I think this is an interesting way to learn something new!
    I think this is more coincidence than anything else.

    I think the show Dexter has helped contribute to the name's popularity. It was declining steadily until 2006 and since then, it's sort of shot up the charts.
    Current favorites:
    Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary

    I wouldn't be surprised. But I associate Dexter with Dexter's Lab, the cartoon. Maybe that's why it was declining in the first place.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    Supernatural has impacted Jensen, Dean, and Castiel. Keep in mind that the show premiered in 2005. (This is in number of births per year.)

    JENSEN
    2004: 125
    2005: 150
    2006: 138
    2007: 169
    2008: 196 (#996)
    2009: 259 (#834)
    2010: 317 (#722)
    2011: 399 (#608)
    2012: 516 (#509)

    DEAN
    2004: 746 (#372)
    2005: 754 (#383)
    2006: 778 (#384)
    2007: 904 (#351)
    2008: 951 (#344)
    2009: 1058 (#305)
    2010: 1179 (#285)
    2011: 1234 (#284)
    2012: 1369 (#260)

    CASTIEL - character introduced in 2008
    2007: <5
    2008: <5
    2009: 13
    2010: 47
    2011: 83
    2012: 122

    D'Angelo at #1000 was used 197 times in 2012. If Castiel's usage continues to increase, it might actually break the top 1000 in the next year or two. In all likelihood Dean and Jensen will continue to increase as well. Jensen is very on-trend anyway. I'm curious to see how high they'll go.

    Is there anything other than Dean Winchester and Jensen Ackles that could have launched Dean and Jensen like that...?
