Here's an unusual little tool that tells you what you would have been named if you were born in decades other than the one you were actually born in. It's rather difficult to describe exactly what this tool does, but I'll try and boil it down to something manageable.

I'll give you an example of what I'm talking about. I hate to confess this, but I was born in 1950. Well, in that year, Gary, was the 10th most popular name for boys. So, If I had been born in 2015, my name would be 'Daniel', because that's the 10th most popular name for boys.

That's pretty much the way it works, but you can also explore the site and find out what your name would have been in various other decades.

My 1980's name would have been Eric and my 1970's name would have been Steven.

Who would you have been in all those decades? Well, you can find out here.
