These names weren't just popular in the 80s... along with Michelle it seemed like 1 out of every 2 girls you met had the name. It is surprising how far they've fallen. Especially Jennifer which has been a mainstay for a long time. Now it doesn't even show up in the top 30?

Ok, so I start out putting in boys and girls names and after none of my girls names come up after about 10 boys did, I concluded it was boys names with J. So I stopped trying girls, then I get done and see Jocelyn, Julia, and jasmine. But that's it. If its both, where's Jessica, Judy, Jennifer, Jane, Jillian, Joan, and so on. Surprising none of those are on the list.

So did your source divide the names by gender, or did you? Because I was sure than not only had Jordan very firmly crossed over into unisex territory, but had kept right on going and was now much more commonly a female name.
