Not sure this holds the quality that I was planning for this blog. But since I have nothing better to post in awatening of some exciting stuff that I can’t post just yet.

How does a world war and a holocaust affect the popularity of a name? That is the question. More specifically the name was Adolf and Sweden Statistics comes to the rescue! I marked some years of importance.

Popularity of the name Adolf

Percent people named Adolf in Sweden

Looks like the decline starts a year or two before Hitler takes power as reichskanzler 1933. I guess everybody in Sweden knew his name and politics by then and choose not to name their babies to Adolf as frequently.
