Family Names

While running an analysis I had a few minutes and I made this sweet plot using the interesting data on the Social Security Administration's website. The plot is of the popularity of Alison's, Ada's and my name over the last 126 years.

(I guess the plot is a little backwards because the more popular a name is, the lower the line and the popularity of Alison is a little misleading because even just this year there were two spellings of Alison (Allyson and Allison) that were more popular)
