So did your source divide the names by gender, or did you? Because I was sure than not only had Jordan very firmly crossed over into unisex territory, but had kept right on going and was now much more commonly a female name.

I don't know if I should be proud or embarrassed that I was one of the 5% to jag Jocelyn. Maybe it was so obvious that many people dismissed it as a possibility.

Tried so many obscure ones, missed so many obvious ones...

Stop and think how many Jims you know personally. I bet it's at least 3. And if you have 300 people that you know personally that's 1%. I keep my Facebook trimmed to only people i know well, so i have 137 friends...of those 5 are named Jim or James. That's 3.6%.

Would Johnathan be an acceptable type-in for Jonathan? It's an uncommon spelling, but it still should count for something.

It should...along with other spellings, John, Jack and Jonathon are just variants of the same name

The acceptance of nicknames seems inconsistent. What makes "John" and "Jonathan" separate entries, whereas "Jim" and "James" count for the same entry? Why does "Jackie" give credit for "Jacqueline", but "Jess" doesn't for "Jessica"?
