Here's a great site that adjusts the popularity based upon similarly-spelled names (homonyms, etc.) so that names like Caden for example, which are listed as above 100 in the SS site, actually show up at ranking #33, because of their numerous iterations. While the SS site is helpful in showing popularity for one version of a name, it's not so great at suggesting other versions of it (Emily vs. Emmaleigh, for example), so you get an idea of how truly popular the name is in terms of how many kids will come running on the playground when you call it out.

Anyway this site's been a great resource and I posted it in another thread but thought it deserved its own, because other folks might find it helpful too.

Thanks - the name we are looking at is nice and low on the list.

Thanks! I just checked and didn't even see either name we picked on there
I did see my DD's name, but not my DS. (His name is Amadeus, it could have been there actually I didn't look "that" close though! LOL)

Very cool! Most of our name options are very low on the list and some aren't even there. I wonder why they didn't fill out the entire column with girl names (to the same ranking as boys)?
