Paired comparison analysis for choosing baby names

Free Download, Paired Comparison Analysis for Baby Names, from Nancy's Baby Names

Need to narrow down your list of favorite baby names? Make your names go mano a mano in a paired comparison analysis!

Access the free spreadsheet by downloading it from Google Drive: Paired Comparison Analysis for Baby Names. Click “File,” then “Download as,” then choose a file format.

Instructions are included in the file, but here’s the gist of it: write in the baby names you’re considering, look at each possible one-to-one match-up, determine a winner, and rate each winner. The spreadsheet will then tally everything up and reveal which name is the most dominant winner.

The file has two sheets — the first is blank, the second is filled out, as an example. (I randomly used the names Chet, Robert, Anthony, Geronimo, Chase and Jayden on the example sheet. Feel free to play around with the numbers on that sheet to see how they affect the percentages below.)

Let me know if you experience any problems with the spreadsheet and I’ll do my best to help you out.

If you find this spreadsheet helpful, please share it on Pinterest, Facebook, etc. Thanks!

(This is an updated version of one of the baby name spreadsheets I posted years ago. Next week I’ll post the new version of the weighted decision matrix.)
