Popular Baby Names

I'm a total data junkie and because we are running a competition that involves a lot of data (Win your $1000 Wishlist) I've been spending a lot of time lately analysing the Belly Beyond database and have come up with some fun facts on first names (well fun if you have a geek gene like me).

Belly Beyond Members First Names

There are a massive 1653 unique first names among our members.  From Abby to Zoe that's a lot of names!

That also shows the average age of your members. Those names are all the girls I went to school with.
