Why are the average ages so old? It's not the baby boom. In fact, modern birth figures are just as high as the baby boom. It's the fact that modern children have more diverse names. This year's top name would have been 8th in 1970.

The diversity of newer names would've been my guess too

Yes but why have the names diversified so much?

The names diversified due to a larger amount of people from other countries and ethinicities as well. Only Maria is a spanish name here, I believe than now names such as Isabella are way more common due to the Mexicans. Add to that names like LaBarbara that virtually did not exist some years ago and to the custom of naming diferent names other than the grandparents and you have your diversity.

odd that Deb gets you Deborah, but not Debra, but when you type in Chris, you get both Christine and Christina. I think this should be remedied.

Either because it is the oldest age, and the Quizmaster was expressing surprise that it was such a high number, or the average age was actually 68 factorial.
