Baby Names : Animated Bubble Charts

These animated bubble charts contain the superset of the top 25 names for each year - one chart for male names and one for female names.

The chart for female names is larger because the list of top 25 names changes more from year to year. Male names seem to be more consistent.

The area of the circle for each name is proportional to the number of babies given that name that year. Large circle = popular name.
