This is the first time I’ve seen an official set of baby name rankings for Houston, so I don’t have any earlier sets of Houston rankings on hand for comparison.

That said, I do have a recent set of rankings for nearby College Station, if you’d like to take a look. (The current College Station rankings should be up in a few weeks…)
