How popular is your name?

http://www.birthdayalarm.com/NamePopularity.jsp?MID=964

My first name (Micah) has the following rank:
1900s - 1950s: >1000
1960s: 718
1970s: 302
1980s: 224
1990s: 229

Having been born in 1975, I see that my influence is growing.

My name (which will remain undisclosed) is extremely popular, having been in the top 10 every decade of the last century, until the 1990s, when it dropped into the top 20. I feel sure it will bounce back soon.

I never thought that "Jesus Einstein McHitler" would be a popular name, but it turned out there were THREE of us in my elementary school.

"Michael" named after St. Michael who is one of the principal angels; his name was the war-cry of the good angels in the battle fought in heaven against Satan and his followers.

Preacher has never been in the top 1000. No rankings at all.

I was born in '78 and only know a couple of people w/ the same name. For the last several years, I am afraid to go into a store because of all the little shits w/ my name and their hoosier mothers screaming at them.

My daughter's name, Ava, is growing more unpopular w/ time.

I'm surprised "Michael" has been at the top for so long.
