My Favorite Names (Part 1)

This is my favorite website.  This, in fact, has been my favorite website for YEARS.  I can remember loving this site when I was 12 years old, sitting on our family computer at the kitchen desk, memorizing the top 1000 names in the USA for each year.

I linked above to the 2012 list, but you can access the entire archived list from here.  My mother doesn't understand the purpose of this list; she can't fathom who would be interested in it, other than me.  I don't think the Social Security Administration was thinking of an Autistic pre-teen girl in Canada with a great obsession with names who could stare at this list for hours and hours on end when it came up the idea to post it online.  Regardless, I'm happy that this resource is so easily accessible on the internet.  Because I like names, I like statistics, and I like lists, so this is pretty much the perfect companion to my Autistic obsession.

My favorites right now?  This is my list of favorite masculine names (categorized between 1-300 on th 2012 list).  The numbers correspond with their placement on the 2012 list.  I wrote this list out by memory yesterday and got a few of the numbers a bit off but I think I've corrected it.  I have other favorites, but they're all after 300.

Next time, my favorites listed between 300-600 :)

(I've been doing this since I was 6 years old and NOBODY CARES about my name obsession, but I love it anyways so I'm going to.  Hopefully someone on the internet will be interested.)
