The WolframAlpha search engine is a great way to find out lots of interesting statistics about names. I put in both my kids’ names and found out that Charlie is a more popular name for girls (#207) than it is for boys (#229) nowadays. The most common age of a male Charlie in the US is 62-years-old, while the most common age of a female Charlie is 2-years-old. The most common age of an Olive (#264) is 89 years old. I guess it makes sense sinceĀ old lady names are making a big comeback, although I never knew that Olive was a retro name; the only Olive I’d ever known was Olive Oyl!

Here are some stats about Charlie’s name as a boy:
