I'm sure this has been posted before. But just in case it hasn't... This website lets you type in any name and tells you how popular it has been over the last fifteen years.

Quite fun trying to find a name that has never been given or names from fiction/tv series that pop up from nowhere like Arya from Game of Thrones.

Mine is getting less popular from 1200 in 1996 to 217 in 2010

Bit o/t but I love the websites background.

Hermione peaked in 2003/2004... interesting that grin

Mine is unchanged at 0%. I knew my parents had made it up, bastards. School was interesting with even teachers asking the piss.

Oops, taking the piss.

Mines gone up 100 places. If it ever ends up super popular I'll be sad.

What happened between 2004/2005 to Violet?

Jennifer Garner/Ben Affleck had a Violet in 2005.... Not sure if that would be a factor though?

This is a brilliant link, thank you. I found that less than 10 babies have been given my name between 1996 and now. That's more than I'd expect!
