It's dead on my age. Then again, I was born during the Carter administration when there was an Amy in the White House.

Hm. It says 10 and I am 20 but I have never met anyone younger than 18 with my name (It's Kaitlyn, by the way haha). I suppose it's still a popular name regardless. Strange!

Is that with one N? I looked up my name with 2 Ns and the peak age is 38.

JanuaryLove

Interesting. So they peaked nearly the same time. I imagine Jenifer is only a small percentage as compared to the Jennifer spelling.
Also, I was riding the peak wave, being 39yo; whereas you are much younger.

I imagine you and I were impacted very differently by our names, despite the fact they are so similar.

No real point. Just thinking out loud.

Makes sense that they peaked near the same time. And yes, my spelling is quite uncommon.

Lower. Says 55; I'm 66, so I was ahead of the curve.

I actually get that a lot! People think I'm in my late twenties, early thirties. How old were you thinking? :)

07/07/13 8:14 pm

I was actually thinking mid to late 30s, but I couldn't tell you why I thought that. No offense intended! I haven't looked at your profile pic recently, either, so if it's a pic of you, please don't take offense.

Younger. That's a bit surprising. Pretty sure it was the most common name for my birth year and surrounding years

Enter your first name into the search box and scroll down to find the most common age. There's also some other great information on there.
