Noah? Wow! I'm surprised! Noah seems to be a perennial classic, and I'm wondering what caused it to reach #1 status? Am I missing some pop culture reference? Not only was Jacob demoted, Liam moved up ahead in usage, too!

I can't believe my daughter's name still hasn't cracked the top 1000.

Replying to myself... I didn't even notice our 14-year-old's name is now in the top 40. *groan* You bunch of hipsters! You're ruining it! *shakes fist like an old lady*
