The popularity of your name is likely far different today than it was the year you were born. Maybe you're one of those men born in 1983 and named Michael, the most popular name of the year. Today, if you were given the most popular boy's name, you'd be named Noah. The following interactive shows you which name had the same popularity in the past year and every decade since 1890 as yours did the year you were born, using newly released baby name data for 2016.

Methodology

Name trends are provided by the Social Security Administration. Whenever names were tied for popularity in a given year or decade, they were assigned the same rank. This tool only searches for names of the same gender as what you entered at the top. Many names have drifted from being associated with boys to being associated with girls over the years, so it can appear as though female names are showing up in the male results.
