    The Baby Name Wizard
    The first thing everyone does at this site is look up their own name.
    Having the now-unusual name Harvey, I was very surprised to discover that, as late as the 1930′s, it was in the top 100 for most common boys’ names.
    By the year 2000, it had fallen out of the top 1000.
    After your own name, you will start looking up names of friends/spouses/lovers (I only had to look up one, your mileage may vary). ...

    Makes sense - Linda #2 in the 1940s and 1950s, and #509 now.

    Yes, I do - but when I looked up the names of my grandmother's friends who had names like Blanche and Gertrude, those are really artifacts of the past. They went downhill quite a bit after the 1890s.
