Name Voyager

The Baby Name Wizard site has a Name Voyager where you can type in your name and see its ranking for every decade over the past century or more in a nifty chart. Seeing as my real name was invented sometime in the late 1920s, it's only on the chart for the past 7 decades. I was named after a classmate of my mother's, so she (being born in the mid 1930s) was probably one of the first to have the name. Its ranking was highest in the 1960s. Not a surprise, due to the books and movies that were written and made during that time. It's currently ranked 350. Sadly, my nickname Varushka does not appear at all.
