Why in the world would people not guess Samuel after guessing Sam? (Also, who is actually named Sam? I, and every Sam I know, are actually Samuels by birth.)
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 04:14 GMT
I am no longer Sam. Sam I no longer am. ...will you still care for green eggs? Maybe ham?
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 04:15 GMT
So many variations...
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 04:28 GMT
Sergio? Really? That's AWESOME.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 04:46 GMT
What about Soda? Pretty name for a girl too.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 05:57 GMT
Pop vetoed that name.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 06:15 GMT
@socraticmethod: Since the source is the Social Security Admin, it's possible that some of the Sams are actually Samuels. Used to, you could apply for your Social Security card long after you were born, and the names on the cards might be shortened versions. I'm sure that some people actually did name their kids Sam, rather than Samuel, though. A lot of names considered full first names are actually shortened versions of other names. Liza is a shortened form of Elizabeth, for example, but it is sometimes given as as regular name. So are Betty, Bette, Beth, etc. Peggy is a nickname for Margaret, but there are many women actually named Peggy. @Rayavi: Yeah, names commonly used by Hispanics often appear in the more recent top 100 lists. That's the fastest growing minority group in the U.S., so their names will become more common. I think it's great, too.

I was thinking of it more as an Italian name, but it's still a great one regardless of origin.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 08:33 GMT
I guess there aren't that many Salvador's. Art history, you've failed me.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 09:09 GMT
The first name I thought of was 'Smithers'... I'm pretty sure that was that guys surname too... :/

I didn't saw you have to guess names starting with S *facepalm*
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 10:44 GMT
I kept thinking Severus.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 11:30 GMT
why did i try sephiroth?
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 11:52 GMT
No Seven? I thought it would catch on.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 12:50 GMT
Good quiz, but harder than expected. My mind just went blank. Also, I missed Stuart, even though I used to know several people called Stuart. And I even missed Scott, who was a friend of mine.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 13:21 GMT
I tried Shaquille just to make sure.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 13:52 GMT
5/5 for the Johnny Cash line.

Shannon?! Last time I looked, that was a girl's name. Did anyone else try Sirius and Severus just in case.....?
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 15:42 GMT
Shannon is indeed mostly a girls name. But look up Shannon Sharpe. He's pretty clearly a guy.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 15:51 GMT
Shannon was a boy's name before it became a girl's one, along with names such as Whitney, Courtney, Beverley, Meredith, Evelyn, Tracey and Kimberly.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 17:13 GMT
I wonder if "Sporcle" will be on the list for the 2010's?
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 17:31 GMT
The tougher kids in the 70's were named "Sue."
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 18:07 GMT
I got Steve and Stephen, but not Steven -.-
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 18:23 GMT
Yes, Shannon. How did I miss that.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 18:27 GMT
Best front page description yet, Johnny Cash rules!
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 19:59 GMT
As a male with an S name, I am shamed at arriving at the 14th percentile. Mind went blank like the person above... To miss the Steph/vens and Scott is just bad.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 20:57 GMT
My brother is Shannon, born 1969.
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 22:53 GMT
its impossible fot me to remember scott, it gets me every time, in every game
Jan 22nd, 2012 at 23:35 GMT
I would have guessed there's a lot more guys named Stuart/Stewart than named Salvatore, Sergio and Sylvester.
Jan 24th, 2012 at 12:10 GMT
So many variations for the name Sean... I feel kinda stupid for accidently typing in Samantha for a variation for Sam, kinda forgot what game I was playing.
Jan 24th, 2012 at 20:48 GMT
there's gotta be some stewarts left out of this quiz.
Jan 25th, 2012 at 22:20 GMT
omg this made my remember flat stanley one of the greatest books I read in my childhood lmao
Jan 26th, 2012 at 18:53 GMT
OK, so I tried Shaft...
Jul 2nd, 2012 at 14:25 GMT
@JustANiceGuy: I hope so. LOL
Sep 14th, 2012 at 18:56 GMT
Of all the D'oh moments... I was actually thinking "Marner, marner, marner... was it Sullivan marner? Silvio Marner? Solley Marner? Simeon Marner?"... Silas Marner, I never liked you.
Nov 29th, 2012 at 21:13 GMT
I'm quite suprised that the Irish names don't make such an impact on these lists, I tried seamus but to no avail... Great Quiz though x
Dec 16th, 2012 at 06:25 GMT
after typing in every variation of "stephen" I typed dan. why? I don't know.
Mar 10th, 2013 at 15:06 GMT
My mind always draws a total blank on these...
Mar 10th, 2013 at 18:00 GMT
Some of these names, especially Scott, have fascinating trajectories down the years. I wonder if anyone has really ever studied the 'fashion' of names?
