What to name the little one?

We found this really cool site today, the Name Voyager.  You enter a name and it will show historically how popular the name has been. 

Another cool site is actually the Social Security Administration's website.  I didn't think I'd ever find a reason to visit their website (after all, it won't be around when we retire).  Here, you can enter your name and find out (with a bit more granularity) how popular your name was in any given year.  For example, we found out that in 1975, Matthew was the 9th most popular name.  and in 1980, Susan was the 64th most popular name. 

Here are some names we like:  Anna, Maria, Veronica, Emma, Benjamin, Peter, and Trenton.

How popular was your name when you were born?  In 2004?  Login to the blog and add your ranking below!
