Link of the Day -- Baby Name Wizard

So if you read yesterday's post, you heard that one of the topics in Freakonomics is baby names. In fact, a whole chapter is devoted to it.
Well, in the spirit of that, let me point you to one of the coolest baby name sites out there. Baby Name Wizard is an applet that allows you to see how a name ranks and has ranked across time. I quickly spent a half hour trying different names and attempting to correlate certain patterns with certain types of names. All in all a fascinating site, which I'm sure you'll waste some time at. Good work to the creator.
