My name

A new cool website: you enter your first name and you can see how many people have that name in the Netherlands. So now I know there are 13,836 people with my first name, and also that my name was very popular in the 1980's and 1990's, and less popular in the new century. They also found out that people with higher education give their children Dutch, French and Scandinavian names, whereas people with fewer braincells prefer English names.
By the way, the sweetest man has 21,876 people with the same name in this country, and his name was popular in the 1960's and 1970's.
