Living With The Name Michael

Living With The Name Michael

Here are the top 5 names for births in the USA from 1912-2011.  As a male named Michael, I'm always interested in where that name ranks.

Incredibly, from 1949 to 2010, the name Michael has ranked in the top four.  Even more incredibly, from 1953 to 2010, it ranked in the top three, usually finishing first.

Growing up, there were always at least three Mikes or Michaels in my class.  That's 10% of us with the same first name.

I played a couple of slo-pitch games last night with two other Mikes, and the three of us have been on this team for a decade.  There are literally thousands and thousands of Toronto Mikes...

I'm willing to bet a bunch of you are named Michael or Mike.  Chime in if that's you.
