Popularity Search Help

The popularity search displays information about the frequency of given names. You can search for up to five names at the same time.

After performing a search, use the country/region drop-down menu to select which results to display. The default country/region is the United States, but this can be changed in the settings.

You can choose whether to view the data graphically or in a list of numbers by using the two tabs. The default view is graphical, but this can also be changed in the settings.

You can select which measure of popularity to display by using the buttons below the tabs. There are three possible measures:

Not all measures may be available depending on the country/region you are viewing. The default measure is percent, but this can be changed in the settings.

If there is more than one name being searched, you can toggle which names are shown by using the buttons below the tabs. To search for multiple names, go to the popularity page and enter up to five names in the search box.
