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

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?

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

You’ve heard of a pride of lions, but what would you call a group of data scientists? A few people from the open source project Great Expectations decided to run a quick survey, and they later explained the most popular and most interesting choices in this blog post.
