Google Map of Canadian Baby Names

The OpenFile - Baby File

Canada's new collaborative news site OpenFile has created a number of Google Maps displaying the most popular baby names in Toronto, Ottawa, and Hamilton-Niagara (2005-2009).

On each of the maps you can click on a postal area and view the top five baby names for boys and girls in the area. Some areas have fewer than five boys' or girls' names, and some have none of either. These areas tend to be either non-residential or low-population districts, or simply have no names that are more popular than others.

Accompanying the maps are a couple of interesting articles 'Why Tenzin reigns in Parkdale' and 'Why Gurleen, and Jayden, and Muhammad, and Joshua rule in Malton'.
