Dataviz and baby names

Yun Choi told me about a great site, the "Baby Name Wizard's NameVoyager, which makes good use of Java to present statistics on (American) baby names. I was most surprised at how much the names I consider common (such as Janet, Linda, Nancy, Diane Bob and Steve) have declined in popularity and how rarely foreign names are given to children born here.
