Big fan of your work on big data crunching and analytics over the last couple of years.

We did analyze 45m+ names from Twitter and FB at Beevolve and here is an app that helps figuring out the demographics (most popular cities, countries, professions) for each name: http://whatsinmyname.prokta.com/

Lots of interesting observation from the dataset: For e.g. some names from South East Asia and South Asia are usually found in families with better socio-economic status and thus are more likely to emigrate to Western countries so their incidence is sometimes more in US compared to their native country.
