My thanks to the "description" under the title on the front page. I wouldn't have guessed Horace otherwise... :)

Sadly my name did not make the cut, Heath is a great name even though it translates to Wasteland.
Aug 5th, 2012 at 07:29 GMT
@Lprdgecko: Same. And if I'd looked at the icon, I'd have gotten Harvey too. And I missed Homer. D'oh!
Aug 5th, 2012 at 08:27 GMT
You can always tell when one of these is published, because the whole of the popular section is just full of names by decade :)

@shine: in Britain and parts of Europe a heath isn't a wasteland, it's a particular type of open land with vegetation such as heather and gorse. Heathland, as an ecosystem in itself, is deliberately preserved in places such as the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).

What, no Hieronymus?
Aug 5th, 2012 at 12:57 GMT
I always miss the easy ones.

So at what point do a bunch of Sporclers name their children Hejman?
Aug 5th, 2012 at 14:32 GMT
No Heathcliff? Even as a bonus? Disgraceful. I'm trying to settle how I shall pay triplet_3 back. I don't care how long I wait, if I can only do it at last. I hope he will not die before I do!

Really surprised that Hank was never popular.
Aug 5th, 2012 at 15:08 GMT
Aug 5th, 2012 at 15:45 GMT
What, no "Happy"s?
Aug 5th, 2012 at 19:16 GMT
It seems quite unusual that the most popular H name of the last 20 years is among the least guessed. (Though I will admit that I did not think of it.)
Aug 5th, 2012 at 23:50 GMT
See, no Hedley, he should have changed it to Heddy, PLUS, he could have sued HER!
Aug 6th, 2012 at 00:34 GMT
Why hasn't Hagrid become popular?
Aug 6th, 2012 at 01:01 GMT
This was surprisingly hard (no pun intended). I went in thinking "damn, Harry, Harold... I'm gonna ace this!" but then it turns out when I try to think of H names I end up coming up with more female ones.
Aug 6th, 2012 at 13:11 GMT
I got Hunter but not the other "trendy name".
Aug 6th, 2012 at 16:05 GMT
To Meltha - I'm pretty sure Hank is a nickname for Henry. These quizzes are usually based off the names on birth certificates, which I'm guessing is why Hank doesn't rank higher.

@janedoe: but Harry is a nickname for Harold
Aug 7th, 2012 at 12:07 GMT
Funny how in the US Harry is short for Harold, but in the UK it's a diminutive of Henry.
Aug 7th, 2012 at 16:30 GMT
Meltha - I came up with Hank too, but it wasn't until the answers came up I remembered it was a nickname for Henry.
Aug 7th, 2012 at 17:51 GMT
Alas, no Horatio
Aug 15th, 2012 at 20:54 GMT
Interesting how so many of the century's classic H names completely fell off the radar in the 70s and 80s.
Sep 16th, 2012 at 13:46 GMT
I can't believe I almost missed Homer.
Sep 25th, 2012 at 17:03 GMT
Shocked at the lack of Huckleberry.
Dec 9th, 2012 at 07:03 GMT
I think this is the first one of these I've guessed all the right answers on. Woo.
