Top Baby Names by Year

Trying to decide on a baby name? Want to know how popular the name has been over the years? Or, maybe you are just looking for girl or boy names.

With this Tableau powered visualization called "Top Baby Names by Year" you can choose male or female names and get the ranking of the top 1,000 baby names, from 2000 to 2010. The data is based off of the Social Security Administration's tracking of baby names. 

For my local readers, here is a view of the popular baby names for Washington State only, for top 100 names from 2000 to 2010:
If I get 10 or more comments per state requesting a top 100 for their state, I will add on that state to the above visualization.
