A very early, preliminary, incomplete look at the revised Top 20 Girl Names

I hope the title is enough to warn you that WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO READ WILL CHANGE, PROBABLY DRASTICALLY. But, for now, here are a few changes to the charts. Note that I selected random names to add to the list, knowing they had many variant spellings and would shift positions. There are LOTS of other names like that, so don’t look at this as anything other than an interesting preview and an example of how much the charts can change once you account for spelling.

SSA Position = the name’s position on the Social Security Administration baby names list. This is the list most websites and news outlets use when reporting on the top baby names.

New Position = the position of the name if I was all done sorting and counting names (note that I am not nearly done!).
