New Feature: Name Clouds

Posted 4 January 2018

Name clouds are a visual representation of how popular names were in a particular year. The larger the name in the cloud, the more popular it was.

The following options are available for names clouds:

Gender: Choose to show all names, or just male or female names

Year: Change the year to show the name cloud for a previous year

Text size: If not all names are fitting in the name cloud or there is excessive white space the text size can be decreased or increased

The name cloud is automatically redrawn every time an option is updated, or the screen size is changed.
