Triplet_3, every night around this time I try to go to bed, and then I find another one of your quizzes and feel compelled to do it. So, so wrong.

Haha, glad to hear it! I usually release games first thing in the morning where I am (UK), so I guess it would be night-time over in the US.

Princess Diana is married in 1981. The name Diana explodes into popularity in the 80's and continues on after that. I think I'm seeing some correlation between the two events here.

No Daphne?! Scooby doesn't approve!
May 2nd, 2012 at 20:31 GMT
I thought there would be no Dana. Only Zuul.

Apparently Miley Cyrus' real first name is Destiny, so the trend makes sense. However, if you're NOT Miley Cyrus and that's your first name, then your "Destiny" is generally to be a pole dancer.

Daenerys will take her place on this list with fire and blood.

Chaim Matis..who ya' gonna call????

Actually, the name Diana was more popular in the 1940s and 50s that it has ever been again. You can look this up in the SSA data. Diana shows up here from 1980 on because most other popular D- names had plummeted.

I'm embarrassed that Destiny is the most recent #1 name. Seriously?
May 3rd, 2012 at 00:40 GMT
Dawn never dawned on me.

Interestingly, the name "Dorothy" number 1 for 50 years, dies off after the decade following "The Wizard of Oz"
May 3rd, 2012 at 01:52 GMT
I don't know ANY Destiny's in real life. I know that that was Miley Cyrus's birth name, but that's it. I guess I should expect to see that name a lot in a decade.

These quizzes always make me imagine shaking hands and meeting a boatload of Savannahs and Destinys in fifteen years.
May 3rd, 2012 at 03:08 GMT
wow Destiny...so this whole these strippers have been using their real names!
May 3rd, 2012 at 03:13 GMT
I finally did it. I forgot my ex's name. Only cost me a percentile. ;)

The name-statistics nerd in me had to jump in: the surge of Destinies isn't really linked to Miley because it took place before she became inexplicably famous; it was already in the Top 100 in 1994. In fact, by 2006 (when Hannah Montana first coagulated), the name was already past its peak.

...so what's the name of Destiny's Child?
May 7th, 2012 at 15:01 GMT
....i put Destiny in as a joke.....
May 14th, 2012 at 21:59 GMT
I met one girl named Destiny several years ago...only one. And she was kind of weird. One other thing...I am I the only one who thinks that Desiree is just about as weird as Destiny?
Aug 17th, 2012 at 03:59 GMT
OMG! MY name was # 1 in 1880...stayed popular until 1920 and then...VANISHED
Sep 2nd, 2012 at 10:26 GMT
Somehow I managed to miss my own name.
Apr 4th, 2013 at 07:36 GMT
Really shocked that "Darla" didn't make the list. A tough, very fun quiz.
