What’s in a name?

One useful tool I use as a writer of fiction is the Social Security Administration’s ranking of most popular baby names by year.  At the site, one can list his or her year of birth and see a listing of most popular names.  Here are the most popular names for 2007:

Top 10 Names for 2007

1 Jacob Emily
2 Michael Isabella
3 Ethan Emma
4 Joshua Ava
5 Daniel Madison
6 Christopher Sophia
7 Anthony Olivia
8 William Abigail
9 Matthew Hannah
10 Andrew Elizabeth
Note: Rank 1 is the most popular, rank 2 is the next most popular, and so forth.
