What was once old, is new again


One of the best things about wandering old graveyards is the names.

1925 was the most popular year (365 girls) for parents naming their daughters Ophelia, while in 2000, only 21 girls sported the name. Yet according to Social Security Administration data, the name seems to be growing in popularity once more.

As of 2013, there were 184 Ophelias out there. Makes me wonder how many will be out there in 2025, the 100-year anniversary of the original peak.
