UK Baby Names

This package contains two datasets provided by the UK Office of National Statistics:

  • ukbabynames: For each year from 1996 to 2019, the number of children of each sex given each name. All names with more than 3 uses are included.

  • rankings: A longitudinal dataset containing the top-100 baby girl and top-100 baby boy names over the period 1904 to 1994.

It is inspired by Hadley Wickham's babynames package.
