Wow, this Baby Name-O-Meter is pretty cool. Enter your name and you can see its popularity graphed over the last century. Kristine seems to have appeared out of nowhere in the 1940s, peaked in the ’70s (when it landed on me), and it’s now in decline. Now I’m totally curious about its origins. Was there some famous World War II chick named Kristine that everybody copied? (Link courtesy of Gael.)

  1. Very nifty! Looks like ‘Jeff’ peaked in the 60’s/70’s and has declined ever since, probably because of over-saturation. (At my current company, 38% of the employees are named Jeff. We’re very small, but still…)
