Saved for a Dead Period

Haven’t felt much like blogging lately, but in a previous fit of blogging, I saved this image:


It describes the popularity of the name “Sandy” for boys and girls from 1900 to 2003. As you can see, I was named “Sandy” at the halfway point of the slide to nothingness. Since most Sandys I’ve seen that are guys are either Scottish or Jewish, I wonder what they’ve been up to instead.

You can check your own name here.

  1. Yeah, except that my parents named me “Sandy” and then thought that was too much of a nickname, so they created a legal name to go with it. “Sandford,” for the record, doesn’t even show. “Sanford” does, but dives out of existence in the middle of the century.
