About the Data

Names and lists are an AJC analysis of Georgia Department of Human Resources birth records from January 1990 through July 2007. No year-by-year counts are shown for names shared by fewer than 10 people, to protect their privacy.

The estimated year-end counts for 2007 are calculated by assuming we have 55% of the births for 2007 in our database.

The following lists of unusual names by category are based on data from external sources:
