What Would Your Name Be if You Were Born Today
This morning we talked about how "Time" magazine has a new feature that's so cool. It figures out what you'd be named if you were born today.
Here's how it works. It looks up the popularity of your name from the year you were born, then shows you what name is currently ranked in that spot today.
So if you were born in 1977 and your name is Benjamin, that was the 29th most popular name that year. If your parents gave you the 29th most popular name TODAY, it would be Christopher.
It also shows you what your name would've been in other decades. So you would've been Luis in the 2000s, Travis in the 1990s, etc. etc., etc. And, coincidentally, Benjamin in the 1890s!
My name, Bethany, would be Gianna if I were born today. Sean would be Levi, and Richie would be Conrad!!
It's fun and silly! Give it a try!
