How this today-name finding widget works?

Recently US Social Security Administration has provided name trends. Whatever names were found at same ranks in the popularity lists over the different decades, they are displayed to you.

This tool searches and displays the names of the same gender as you’ve entered before. Some names that were associated with a particular sex before some years are now associated to the opposite sex. This is the reason why I ended up with “Lillie” in 1910s.

Try this tool here and share your today names below in the comments.
