Turns out that Ada ranked #33 in most popular baby names in the U.S. in the year 1880! Sarah has made the top 10 every year since 1978. Golda was at its peak in 1894 coming in at #294. Mordechai was found in the top 1000 only once in the records that are available. That would be #973 in the year 2003. However, in New York City, Mordechai is now ranked at #155. It seems I've started a trend. ;) What possessed me to check this all out? It all started with this article. Check out the related links for some more name fun.
