How did we spend 30 minutes this morning? Well checking out baby names and what states they're the most popular in, of course! This simple Google Maps overlay is oddly addicting because of it's simplicity that allows you to check out different states or countries. It's like a yearbook (minus pictures) to the world!

All the fun is had over at Baby Name Map where you can tag your favorite names as you're searching around for something new, exciting or even traditional. It's fun to see what's the norm here in the States versus names in Sweden, for example. What's most fascinating to us isn't how different the most common names are, it's more so how they're the same. Let's just say that if you're naming your son Jack anytime soon, he won't have any trouble finding personalized key chains and license plates at the gift shop!
