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 first names of USA citizens (19th Century until 2014) see github.com/hadley/babynames - and the many R tutorials associated with this dataset

  • Do you want just teh two lists, or do want correlations between the two?

  • I am not sure it is possible to get correlation among the two, it looks too private information. So separated is fine for me.
