  1. Interesting. Some of the most nationally popular boy’s names are missing (no Jacob, no William, no Jayden or Aiden or Alexander) but the girls are pretty much exactly what I would expect, at least the top six.

  2. Re: Diane’s observations – I’ve noticed the same thing too with there tending to be more regional variation with boy’s names than with girl’s. (This is the opposite of how over time and in general the variation is greater with girls – maybe this means if you’re trying to avoid a popular name your state/regional stats matter even more for a boy.)
