First Names and Last Names

NameVoyager is an interactive portrait of America's name choices. Start with a "sea" of nearly 5000 names. Type a letter, and you'll zoom in to focus on how that initial has been used over the past century. Then type a few more letters, or a name. Each stripe is a timeline of one name, its width reflecting the name's changing popularity. If a name intrigues you, click on its stripe for a closer look.

L'Italia dei Cognomi: type a last name and see its density on the map of Italy. They also have one for the USA

Kiss the rest of your day goodbye!
