Popular Baby Names by Postal Code

This is crazy!  While browsing a search engine for baby names (we’ve decided on a boy and girl name but for some reason I can’t stop looking), I came across this page.  If you go to Open File: Ottawa Baby File, you can see what the most popular baby names in Ottawa are based on your postal code.

It seems a little creepy to me out of principle, but it’s also a great way to see what names will be common when your little one goes to school and helps you to avoid (if you want) having a popular name in your community, since name popularity can really vary province to province and city to city.  Open File also has a page for Hamilton and Toronto, so check it out if you live in either of those areas.

    Woah, that’s crazy! I just checked out the Hamilton one – seems like its pretty consistent with some of the popularity lists for Ontario/Canada at large.
