SSA site for name popularity: how do you...

...find out how popular a name is if it has various spellings?

Madeline, Madelyn, and Madeleine all have separate rankings, and I want to know how popular they are combined, but it's not telling me the # of babies by that name so I can add them all up and see where it would rank.  I thought I remembered it listing the rank AND the # of babies born with that name somewhere...is it on the SSA site or another one?

  • It used to give the # of births back when our DC#1 were born but no longer:(

  • Oh, and I love Madeline/Madelyn...Madeleine is really pronounced like Jacqueline...Line not Lynn although I am sure some people will mess it up no matter what but you can have that happen with any name (my MIL and Aunt both kill Nathaniel somehow.)

  • I think baby centers article had something where you could look up the name and it would give you the number. 
  • here is what it told me for Kalliyan but you can search all three of your options by putting in the name.
