Is it a state, or is it a baby?
Let’s start off easy. Connecticut is a state. Emily is a baby. Georgia we’ll have to score for both sides. Now, how about Kansas? Before you answer, you might want to talk to the 30 American families that named babies Kansas last year. (Any guess at the gender ratio?)
State names aren’t a new style. The 1900 U.S. Census counted over 9000 women named Missouri and 4000 named Tennessee. But individual states move in and out of fashion. Florida, for instance, has vanished from the modern name pool. See where your state stands in this literal-minded name map of the USA. Full stats are below.
