  • 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.
