Happy Easter to all – I will be back by Monday, April 4th with new quizzes, updates, and monitoring of the site – thanks for your patience while I worked on other things.
Name the 1000 most common names among people currently living in the US. Estimates were taken based on census age groups for the 87% of people in 2012 census who were born in the US, cross-referenced against Social Security most popular names for the year in which they were born from 1923-2012 (slight skew toward 1923 as I put all 90+ year-olds in that year). Obviously these are rough estimates and don’t take into account foreign-born residents or immigration factors, etc. Estimated # of people with the name, sex, and year when most people of that name contributed to total are shown. Numbers are in thousands. Example: for the highest ranked name, it is most commonly a male name, just over 4M people living with it, of which the highest single year number (just over 100K) were born in 1967.
