According to the Social Security Department, “Oliver” continues its improbable rise in popularity as a name for babies. Look:
A decade ago, “Oliver” was way down at 305, it cracked the top 100 last year and now has jumped 10 spots in a year. Better watch out, “Jacob.”
You’re welcome, Oliver.
How so? This blog launched around December of 2000. In that time, the name “Oliver” has increased in popularity. The connection is clear.
