Today’s Follow Friday is a Web site called Behind the Name.com that provides insight into the first names in your family tree. They have a search interface for a database that ranks the popularity of given names for the past 100+ years for a host of countries, including the United States, Great Britain, Norway, Belgium, Hungary, Sweden, and Spain.

This site is a lot of fun – even if your tree is littered with dozens of George and Mary and Anna and Lars given names like mine is.
