5th – Sarah – 1980

Watch out.  You will spend hours on this site.  Trust me.  Done it.  I practically graphed the popularity of my name for the past 40 years, then did everyone else I know. : )

“Caitlan is not in the top 1000 names for any year of birth in the last 10 years.”  And my mom thought they were spelling it the normal way.  Hah!  Not that Caitlin was popular back then either…  I think I was at least 12 or so before I met another one, regardless of spelling.

ETA: Obviously, I’m not 10 but that’s all it gave me.  😉

My name was 29th the year I was born, but then it went and became ridiculously popular around ten years ago.

Mine was 20th the year I was born, got a little more popular in the years after, and is definitely off-trend now!

I didn’t realize it was quite so popular!

4th… but there’s another 1 or 2 people with my name in every friend group/ every class I’ve ever had. Seriously.

Mine didn’t get into the top thousand until 1992. Now it’s #282.

316th in my birth year – the most popular it ever got was 178th

If you look for the more common spelling it was 152nd and it broke the top 100 in 1986 at 93rd!  FUN!

**My mom’s name has not been in the top 1000 in the last 100 years!**

@ginnyc I did not expect to see another Virginia on here! I don’t go by that, but, crazy!  It was ranked #212 the year I was born.  I haven’t met that many with the same name, so I knew it wouldn’t be popular.
