If You Were Born Today

Today I stumbled upon
 Time Magazine's "Find Out What Your Name Would Be If You Were Born Today"
name-generator
It takes the relative popularity of your name in the year you were born and matches it with a name of the same popularity for various decades.

To my horror, apparently my name today would be the abomination:
"Kayden"
 Kayden? WTF

This sounds like something one of the Kardashians is probably going to name her 3rd grandchild.

Anywho, here's a list of the other decades, none of which are terribly inspiring, but all
better than Kayden:
2000s =Mario
1990s =Hector
Hector
1980s=Reginald
 
1970s= Greg
 
1960s=Kerry
 
1950s=Herman
 ... Gwynne played the role of Herman Munster on the TV comedy The Munsters
1940s=Sidney

 
1930s=Oliver
 
1920s=Clifton
 Clifton Webb
1910s=Dave 
 
1900s=Franklin

Thankfully, it seems my name in the1890s would be
the much sexier "Sylvester"
Yes!
At last a name I can get behind.

I'd be Chloe. Which I can almost get behind because Chloe Seveigny (you know who I mean and I'm too lazy to figure out how she actually spells her name) is so bat-shit crazy. On the other hand, I resent having scroll down a LOOOONG way to get to my birth year.

I would be "Jesse". But I would not have a girl that another man could sing about...

Oh how boring....my name today would be Luke. The oldest name is Isaiah. I can't seem to escape biblical times.
