Now here are two fun GIFs.

I missed this when it was first published in October. The beauty of the Internet is that a lot of articles published online have a long shelf life. This happens to be one of them.

The Atlantic published two GIFs on separate pages explain the most popular boys’ and girls’ names for each state since 1960.

An example: The top boys’ and girls’ name for Colorado in 1960 were David and Mary, respectively. In 2012, Liam and Sophia were the top names for boys and girls.

Take a look at the boys GIF and girls GIF page.

Unfortunately for me, Dalton didn’t make a dent anywhere.
