Lately I’ve been experimenting with word clouds.  They’re an awesome way to visualize data…especially for names!

This is one I’ve made today.  Keeping in mind that extremely popular names will dwarf names less commonly used, often rendering the latter category invisible, I decided to make one using names falling within a certain range.  So – this cloud is of my favorite names that were used between 50 and 100 times in America in 2014!
