TDWI Upside - Where Data Means Business

Data Stories: What’s in a Name?

Explore androgynous names, common names, and proposed data science group names in these data visualizations.


Gender-Neutral Names

Tableau Workbook

This Tableau workbook displays names that have been almost evenly split between baby boys and girls in the U.S. Choose a decade between 1910 and 2010 to investigate further.


Anna or Amanda?

Flowing Data

Names follow trends, and those trends inspired this playful visualization at Flowing Data. Choose a gender and a birth decade, then start typing. The chart will guess your name based on the most common names at the chosen time.


Fun with Collective Nouns

Great Expectations blog
