Where could I find datasets of the percentage of name in the UK and US? I am looking at both first name and surname. And is it even possible to find such dataset?

    For given names, see this question and its answers: opendata.stackexchange.com/questions/46/… – jknappen May 23 '16 at 11:39
  • For first names of USA citizens (19th Century until 2014) see github.com/hadley/babynames - and the many R tutorials associated with this dataset – knb May 23 '16 at 12:24
  • Do you want just teh two lists, or do want correlations between the two? – Jan Doggen May 23 '16 at 12:43
  • I am not sure it is possible to get correlation among the two, it looks too private information. So separated is fine for me. – YCR May 23 '16 at 13:59
  • @knb Awesome, thanks, Hadley is definitely an incredible guy. – YCR May 23 '16 at 14:00
