Interesting article on the migration of baby names from the afluent to the poor. Levitt has been getting a lot of press the last year or so for his counter-intuitive econometric insights. Personally having not seen the rigorous data it seems just as much the kind of empirical-based, cute but never really bordering on truth, information as Malcolm Gladwell. Here's a great rant about how the data is sound, but the conclusions are not.

We of course avoided this debate altogether by choosing a name that is neither afluent nor poor, as we don't know a soul who uses it.
