NameVoyager is a playful interactive web tool that visualizes baby-naming trends.
The underlying database contains 5000 names of babies born in the Unites States since 1900, as reported by the Social Security Administration.
You can either type in a name, or merely a single letter to see how it has been used over the past century in relation to similar names and letters. The visual volume reflects its changing popularity and if you find a name that intrigues you, simply click on it get more detailed statistics.
Namevoyager is a dynamic supplement to a book by Laura Wattenberg called 'Baby Name Wizard's', which is a field guide to soon-to-be-parents who are searching for the perfect baby name.
