The Most Popular Boys' Names, State by State, from 1960 to the Present

Reuben Fischer-Baum, who created the map of The Most Popular Girls' Names, State by State, from 1960 to the Present, has his followup ready, this time for boys' names. Naming baby boys is a less trendy venture, and there have been only at few names at the top. On this animated map, the name in color is the one that was most popular nationwide that year, and for fifty years there have been only two: Michael and Jacob. The biggest names from years gone by are still popular today, and just about all of them are Biblical. The data used was from the Social Security Administration. You can see the maps for each year separately at Jezebel. -via Daily of the Day

My nephew named his son Cole Danger so eventually he could say, "...and Danger is my middle name." There was also discussion of naming his daughter Rylie Coyote but his wife vetoed that middle name.
