or just:

NameMapper (from Baby Name Wizard) beat me by 3 weeks

Wow, they did it again. The Wattenberg's, over at Baby Name Wizard, have made an excellent mapping tool showing the popularity of baby names in different US states and also for different years. Here is their announcement, which was about 3 weeks before my announcement. Obviously, I had been working on my maps for more than three weeks, so I didn't take their idea.... But, now I can't claim to be the only place to view state-by-state popularity differences.

Their state browser is much more featured than mine, but again, it uses Java which makes it slower to load, and it actually crashed my whole browser the first time I tried it. Should I give up and stop promoting my site? I would almost say "yes" except I think that there is room for more than 1 good baby name website.
