    Six Decades of the Most Popular Names for Girls

    Has anyone else seen this? It was interesting to see, especially the Jennifer years.

    Hmm... So Utah appears to be the first state to go Jennifer and then Madison, I knew those Mormons were trouble .

    Mr. Fry: So, what should we name him?
    Mrs. Fry: Uh, you pick. I picked dinner last night.
    Mr. Fry: Well, I was thinking of Philip. After those screwdrivers?
    Mrs. Fry: That's a great idea! More morphine, please.

    Ha! I was just headed here to post about this, too! I thought the Jennifer years were interesting, too, but also thought the shift from Emily to Emma was fascinating because Emily stayed at #1 nationally, but (apparently) only held three states' top spots. So there must have been enough CA, TX, and UT babies named Emily to keep it as the national #1!

    I think it's cool that after 1978 you don't see that kind of dominance anymore. Jennifer took over the country in the mid-late 70s...all 50 states had it ranked number 1. Hasn't happened again.
