Wolfram Alpha Is Neat

I was playing around with the new Wolfram Alpha search engine. But its not really a search engine. Anyway, for a goof, I did a vanity search and the below is what was output. My first name is ranked 172nd, and approximately 1 in 935 people born have the first name Stephen. My name was most popular betwen 1950 and 1960, it has been in steady decline since then, and approximately 760,000 people alive today are named Stephen. Converse to the high birth rate in the 1950-60 timeperiod, the age distribution of those with the name Stephen has peaks with those in the 35-45 range and the 50-65 range. That is just cool.
